Mozilla announces flaw, fix in FireFox, SeaMonkey

Brein Matturro Profile: Brein Matturro

Mozilla has announced that there is a flaw in both its FireFox browser and the SeaMonkey application suite that would allow attackers to bypass security using a regression error in the way the open-source apps handle IMG tags.

The flaw affects Firefox version 1.5.0.9 and 2.0.0.1, and SeaMonkey version 1.0.7. The flaw is repaired in later versions of both applications.

Mozilla released those versions last week, including a fix for more than 10 other flaws in Firefox.

Mozilla’s security chief said the organization tries to release a security upgrade every six weeks or so.
