Firefox 3.0.11 closes critical holes
The release of Firefox 3.0.11 has eliminated eleven vulnerabilities in 3.0.10, with four of the vulnerabilities classified as critical out of the nine problems listed in the security advisory. One of the critical issues in the advisory actually covers three issues which can at least crash the browser and could allow for arbitrary code to be executed. The developers, to be on the safe side in such cases, classify the set as a critical vulnerability.
SeaMonkey and the Thunderbird mail client are also affected, with the issues resolved in Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 and SeaMonkey 1.1.17; these versions are expected to be released shortly.
In addition to the security fixes, the Firefox developers updated the version of SQLite used within the browser to eliminate errors that could destroy the bookmark database.
