Mozilla fixes 16 flaws with Firefox 3.5.4

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla today patched 16 vulnerabilities in Firefox, 11 of them critical, as it updated the open-source browser to version 3.5.4.

The 11 critical Firefox 3.5 vulnerabilities were located in a variety of components, including Web worker calls, the GIF color map parser, the string-to-number converter, a trio of third-party media libraries, and both the JavaScript and browser engines.

"Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code," Mozilla said in some of the advisories outlining the most serious flaws.

V2 Of KDBUS Published For Linux Kernel Review

The second revision to the Linux kernel based D-Bus implementation is now available for review. Greg Kroah-Hartman on Thursday night posted the "v2" revision of the KDBUS implementation for providing the kernel with a new IPC implementation that resembles the existing user-space D-Bus daemon while adding extra features.

More details via the patch-set series. It's not clear yet whether KDBUS will be ready for merging in the Linux 3.19 kernel or will be held off until Linux 3.20 or longer. Read more
