Well, insecure 3.6.4 updated to 3.6.6 .... and guess what .. ??? ....it's STILL insecure with 2 critical attack vectors.

Have used FF for years now and have no immediate intentions to change, but will watch this space with interest ;-)

Where are these vulnerabilities showing?

I suspect they are in the SECURE BROWSING section.

If so that means that Firefox has got two low level vulnerabilities that have not been patched.

Provided U use safe surfing there is little impact until Mozilla fix them.

Hi

According to the 3.6.6 changelog this is the only fix, which is a stability issue (non security):
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6.6/release...

"Firefox 3.6.6 modifies the crash protection feature to increase the amount of time that plugins are allowed to be non-responsive before being terminated."

Hi Maurice, thanks for your reply.

You are correct ... it shows up in "Secure Browsing" with no known fix at the moment.

Thankyou also, [b]M Hansen[b] for your response ... nice to see that the issues are stability rather than security, but why would Secinia see vulnerabilities (as Maurice points out) as insecurities with attack vectors?
