Three More Bugs Found In Firefox And Mozilla
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 2/10/2005 09:39:00 AM.

Hot on the heels of Monday's disclosure of spoofing vulnerabilities in most non-Internet Explorer browsers, a security researcher Tuesday unveiled another trio of bugs in Firefox and its Mozilla cousin.

The flaws, all of which involve some user action, can be used by hackers to drop code onto a PC, muck with the about:config element of the browser, or steal cookies that, for instance, provide instant access to protected Web sites. "If you create a hybrid of a .gif image and a batch file you can trick Firefox," claimed the German researcher identified only as "mikx" by Danish security firm Secunia, in his original warning of one of the bugs.

The vulnerabilities have been confirmed in Firefox 1.0 and Mozilla 1.7.5, the most current editions of the open-source browser and browser suite, respectively.

While Mozilla Foundation developers have implemented fixes, they haven't been rolled into a patch or a new version that can be downloaded and used without recompiling the code.
