Mozilla bug fix with Firefox 2.0 refresh

Mozilla has released the first update for the Firefox 2.0 browser to fix eight security vulnerabilities.

The release 2.0.0.1 of Firefox fixes flaws in memory corruption as well as the way the browser executes RSS (really simple syndication), Javascript and CSS (cascading style sheets) code, among other vulnerabilities. Mozilla also patched similar flaws in its Firefox 1.5 browser.

Five of the eight flaws were rated as critical, according to Firefox. This means a Firefox user would be vulnerable to attack and remote software installation on their machines just from browsing the web in the usual fashion. Two of the flaws were rated as high, while one received a low, security risk rating.

Mozilla's advisory and information on the update can be found at Web site.

Danish security firm Secunia ApS also posted information about the patches on its Web site.

Mozilla released Firefox 2.0, the second major update to its open-source browser, in October.
