Security updates to Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird

New versions of Mozilla products Firefox, Thunderbird (email) and Seamonkey (web suite) have all been released. Technical details of the fixes to Firefox can be found here: Security Advisories for Firefox; details for Firefox ESR, the business version of Firefox, can be found here: Security Advisories for Firefox ESR. Links to update info on the other products are here: Known Vulnerabilities in Mozilla Products.  I'm not having any issues with my Firefoxes after patching, so you should apply the updates.  Please call me if you need help with any of this.

  • Firefox 13.0
  • Firefox ESR 10.0.5

These vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code, cause a denial-of-service condition, disclose sensitive information, operate with elevated privileges, or perform a cross-site scripting attack.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review the Mozilla Foundations Advisory for Firefox 13, Firefox ESR 10.0.5, Thunderbird 13, Thunderbird ESR 10.0.5, SeaMonkey 2.10 and apply any necessary updates to help mitigate the risk.
