Firefox updates fix 3 critical flaws

Mozilla Firefox has just released version 3.5.6 on December 15th. This update of the open-source browser sews up security and stability issues, resolving three critical security holes, and also patches up other stability issues. The three flaws that this update rectifies:

1. An integer overflow flaw in the libtheora video library
2. A memory Safety concern in the liboggplay media library
3. A problem with Javascript that could allow for crashing the browser and potentially running malicious commands

Please see Mozilla’s list of security advisories for a full list on the critical fixes and more details.

The moral of this post: When your Firefox browser prompts you to install some updates, please do so!
