Firefox 3.0.2 update fixes security bugs

Critical security advisories for Firefox are described as: “Vulnerability can be used to run attacker code and install software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing.”

Firefox critical advisory MFSA 2008-41 is described as “Privilege escalation via XPCnativeWrapper pollution,” while the second critical advisory MFSA 2008-42 is described as “Crashes with evidence of memory corruption.”

Although Mozilla doesn’t say that any of the Firefox security flaws fixed with these releases have been exploited yet, all Firefox users should probably upgrade as soon as is convenient.

It auto updated for us late last night, if you haven’t been updated yet then here’s the link: http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/
