Mozilla Patches 15 Firefox Bugs

Kara Reeder

Mozilla has addressed 15 vulnerabilities in Firefox, including 11 labeled as critical, reports Computerworld.


One patch addressed a flaw that attackers could exploit to bypass a site's cross-site scripting defenses to inject and execute malicious JavaScript into the website.


However, perhaps the most notable of the patches was a fix for Firefox's DLL load hijacking bug that affects scores of Windows applications. The bug was first reported by HD Moore, the chief security officer of Rapid7 and creator of the Metasploit penetration testing toolkit. Microsoft has already released a tool it says will block known exploits.
