Security firm Secunia has issued a “highly critical” advisory for a security flaw in Netscape. The highly critical flaw was discovered earlier this week, and is known to affect at least Netscape versions 6.2.3 and 7.2. It may also affect other 6.x and 7.x versions of Netscape.
According to Secunia, the flaw allows a hacker to crash a users computer, or even to remotely execute code on the compromised system.
While a Netscape spokesperson advised Netscape users with the compromised versions of Netscape to upgrade to Netscape version 8.0, Secunia advised users to “use another product”.
