Firefox security patch

Recommended Posts

A new, unpatched flaw that affects all versions of Firefox could let attackers surreptitiously run malicious code on users' PCs, a security researcher has warned.

The problem lies in the way Firefox handles Web links that are overly long and contain dashes, security researcher Tom Ferris said in an interview via instant messaging late Thursday.

It still has less security problems than the ones that IE has, and FF has many more useful features anyways, so I don't mind using it (I don't mind its security holes).. I would've gotten something with IE anyways.. :D

is it maybe because there are a lot more people looking for holes in ms products than anything else? what's the point in finding a hole in macos for example.

dumbass kid 1: look, i found a way to haxxor 3 of the worlds 200 bazillion computers by exploiting this macos bug.

dumbass kid 2 :you are so 1337.

that just ain't gonna happen.

1.07 is on its way according to anandtech..

"As soon as we got the report that users might be impacted, we began evaluating our options," said Mike Schroepfer, director of engineering at the Mozilla Foundation. Firefox version 1.0.7 and Mozilla version 1.7.12, which fix the IDN flaw, are now being tested, he said. "We're releasing as soon as we possibly can."

I Always hear how securue FF is'  now it needs security patches? hmnnnn Im still with IEand always will.

You never hear about IE patches, cuz there are too many security issues.. It would take a couple of hours at least to fix them all (download and install patches).. So far, FF is better for me and I hope ppl don't make other exploits for it :D

The reason that everyone says that is because most of the time less than 24hours after the problem is found there is a patch to it.. unlike microsoft where you have to wait til the next month's security release or if the problem is worse enough it is released early..

I Have the automatic updates turned off on my computer' i haven't installed a single patch on it' i have no problems and no issues' im well protected  my computer is running great and im happy with the way things are running on my system' patches? maybe when i get corrupted... but then again maybe i will install them.  if that happens i'll reformat and wipe the drive clean and perform a back up restoration from Ghost 2003 and have my computer running like before it was attacked
