Mozilla issues Firefox alert(December 13, 2005)
The Mozilla Foundation has issued a security advisory, acknowledging concerns about a potential flaw in its Firefox 1.5 browser that could cause a buffer overflow error.
However, the browser company strenuously denied in its Sunday advisory that the problem would cause any lasting damage to the application. It maintains that the glitch is very easy to fix.
The issue came to light last Wednesday, when the first exploit code for the potential vulnerability was published.
