Mozilla has released Firefox 18 and Thunderbird 17.0.2. Both releases address a number of critical vulnerabilities that could have been leveraged by a remote attacker to seamlessly install software or execute malicious code.
With these updates, Mozilla has blocked the mis-issued TURKTRUST certificates. It’s worth noting that the company was among the first to announce the removal of the problematic certificates after news broke out regarding the fact that they were being used in phishing attacks.
In Firefox 18, an installer DLL hijacking flaw has been taken care of.
