The Mozilla Foundation has just released their Firefox 1.0.5 security update for Firefox, coincidentally at the same time as Microsoft released their own monthly security patches for Windows.
Firefox 1.0.5 also upgrades and improves the browser’s stability itself, but the most important aspect of this release is definitely patching some security issues.
Said Michael Sutton, Director of Mozilla’s iDefense Labs, “There are three categories that all the exploits fall into, One category includes issues like frame origin or cross-domain content injection. Those are the vulnerabilities that assist in phishing attacks. About half of the Firefox vulnerabilities fell into that category, at least one for which there was some public exploit code available.”

Two of the issues are considered critical to fix, while four more are considered high risk.
So, if you are a Firefox user, get yourself over to Mozilla and update your Firefox today.
