The Mozilla Corporation today issued small updates for its popular Firefox Web browser and Thunderbird e-mail applications, primarily targeting security problems.
The updates take both products to version 18.104.22.168, and were issued via the vendor's automatic update system this morning, Australia-time.
The less popular SeaMonkey mail and browsing suite was also updated to version 1.0.5.
Mozilla's Web site lists security-related fixes for Firefox, including a bug showing evidence of memory corruption, and other holes that could be exploited by malicious attackers. Many of the issues were pointed out by parties external to the vendor.
Thunderbird was updated to correct many of the same issues.
