Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox 1.5.0.5 is a security update that is part of our ongoing program to provide a safe Internet experience for our customers. We recommend that all users upgrade to this latest version." Improvements to product stability were made, several security fixes were added, as well as changes for the Frisian locale (fy-NL). Buter, brea, en griene tsiis; wa't dat net sizze kin, is gjin oprjochte Fries. No, I'm not either.

To those who complain

I don't understand why you complain.

I do not complain when patches come out, no matter its Windows, Linux, Firefox or IE.

As long as unknown vulnerabilities become known and fixed BEFORE they go wild, it is a Good Thing(TM).

It means the developers are working, and they are faster than other crackers out there, and they keep their users safe.

And for the trojan extension, would those people try to understand the nature of infection first, before complaining Fx as not secure? It actually takes advantage of OTHER (e.g. IE) vulnerabilities to infect your Fx. Theoretically these kind of infection can infect ANYTHING you can access. Fx is just a victim of such consequence.

Also please take a look at the following URL, and check out what Psyme is. It exploits ADODB.Stream vulnerability that was patched in 2004.

What do you think if your system is not yet patched with a fix released in 2004?
