Firefox 3 ist noch nicht lange auf dem Markt, nun schieben die Entwickler mit der Version 3.0.1 ein Sicherheitsupdate nach.
Firefox version 3.0.1
The update resolves problems when printing web sites and a bug that caused Firefox to start in offline mode on Linux even though a connection to the internet is available. Another thing fixed: a security gap, which allowed the execution of malware via the CSS features of the browser.
Another bug that was related to the MAC version only, is history, too: manipulated GIF files could be used to crash the browser or run malware. The third security gap fixed, enabled attackers to open web sites via a command console, even if the web browser was not running.
The update is working automatically.
The latest Firefox version is either available via the automated update feature of the Browser or as a download. The update is recommendable to all Firefox users.
