Firefox 3.0.8 Available for Download

#1
Firefox 3.0.8 is designed to patch two Critical security vulnerabilities, according to Mozilla. The open-source browser is vulnerable to attacks exploiting flaws related to “arbitrary code execution through XUL <tree> element” and XSL Transformation. The vulnerability related to the XUL tree element was demonstrated recently at the CamSecWest conference in Vancouver when a security researcher completely took over a machine via Firefox at the Pwn2Own hacking contest.

The XSL Transformation vulnerability, labeled Critical, represents an even greater risk to Firefox users since proof-of-concept code for the flaw was released in the wild. “A XSL stylesheet could be used to crash the browser during a XSL transformation. An attacker could potentially use this crash to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer,” Mozilla informed.
