The Mozilla Foundation has released security updates to fix multiple flaws that could result in system hijacking in its open-source Firefox browser, Thunderbird e-mail client and SeaMonkey Internet applications suite.
According to Mozillas advisory, the impacts of the vulnerabilities vary. “Some of these crashes that showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code,” the advisory says.
Mozilla fixed the Layout Engine bugs in these updates: Firefox Versions 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124; Thunderbird Versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52; and SeaMonkey Versions 1.0.9 and 1.1.2. The downloads are available at the advisory site.
