From Mozilla Details Two New Security Flaws in Firefox

Firefox creator Mozilla has announced two security alerts for its popular web browser. The new alerts pertain to security vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to run arbitrary code using the Firefox browser.

The Mozilla Foundation says that attackers through javascript could go back to a users’ prior visited web pages allowing them to steal sensitive information. This issue also affects users of the Mozilla Suite. Mozilla also has found that Firefox’s automated install function could also be compromised. Mozilla, which is updating its servers to curtail further exploitation, recommends users to disable javascript and the automatic installation feature on their Firefox browser until a fixed version is released.
