Are you safe on the Web? It’s an issue browser vendors deal with all the time as they wrestle with new attacks and the necessity to develop and implement preventative security measures as well.
As eSecurity Planet reports, two leading browsers, Mozilla’s FireFox and Google’s Chrome, gained security fixes this week designed to address a number of flaws; five rated “critical” by Mozilla. Google’s Chrome update includes five fixes it labels as having “having high impact” while one is listed as “critical.”
It’s a big week for browser updates, as both Mozilla and Google are updating their respective Web browsers for multiple security flaws.
The Mozilla Firefox 3.6.11 update addresses at least nine security flaws, five of which are rated as being critical by Mozilla. Among the critical flaws are memory safety hazard issues, as well as a memory corruption issue that could potentially enable an attacker to run arbitrary code.
