LXer: Mozilla patches major Firefox security flaw

Published at LXer:

Mozilla Corp. today released updated versions of the Firefox browser, v1.5.0.10 and v2.0.0.2, for Windows, Mac, and Linux, that close a major security flaw called the "location.hostname vulnerability." The fix stops hackers from being able to tamper with how websites are displayed.
