Mozilla Fixes 'Critical' Bug In Earlier Patch

2007-03-09 09:22:00

The Mozilla Foundation issued a download this week that fixes a prior patch that they had issued in December.

The problematic update was issued for Mozilla's flagship Firefox browser and for its SeaMonkey application suite, according to an advisory. The vulnerability, which Mozilla labeled as 'critical', caused JavaScript problems and enabled hackers to remotely execute arbitrary code. The bug was in Firefox 1.5.0.9 and Firefox 2.0.0.1, as well as in SeaMonkey 1.0.7.

The December patch update also addressed bugs in Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client, but it was unaffected by the bug, according to the company's advisory.

The advisory explains that the faulty patch introduced a regression that allows scripts from Web content to execute arbitrary code. Thunderbird was not affected by this flaw as it will not execute JavaScript.

The U.S.-CERT said it "strongly encourages" users to upgrade to Firefox 2.0.0.2 and SeaMonkey 1.1.1 as soon as possible.
