by Lashan Clarke

Mozilla released a patch to at least ten security holes to the FireFox application. One of these issues involved a traversal issue with a directory, and was listed as a high severity flaw within the application.

At least three critical issues where patched by Mozilla. One issue involved a hole that allowed a script to escape the sandbox, while another could be tampered with with allow a code to be executed.

Included within this patch was a way to plug the hole that allowed a hacker to gather information on your browsing history.
