New bug-fixed version of Firefox released
Contributed by: SHA, at 7/14/2005 08:20:00 PM.

The open source consortium Mozilla has released a new version of its popular Firefox browser this week. Version 1.0.5 addresses a number of security issues that have come to light since the last update in May.
There are 12 vulnerabilities identified and fixed in the current update. Two of which are said to be critical. The first allowed applications to run arbitrary code through the browser; the second allowed code execution through shared objects.
Media players, such as Flash and QuickTime can open URLs in the default browser. Previously, Firefox replaced the currently open browser window's content with the externally opened content. If the external URL was a JavaScript url it would run as if it came from the site that served the previous content, which could be used to access sensitive information.
The second more esoteric bug meant that improper cloning of base objects allowed web content scripts to walk up the prototype chain to get to a privileged object. This could be used to execute code with enhanced privileges.
