Mozilla warns of security holes, patches Firefox

Several security vulnerabilities in Firefox and the Mozilla Suite of Internet software put users of the open source products at risk of hacker attacks, the Mozilla Foundation warned Thursday. The organization released Firefox 1.0.1, which fixes 17 security flaws in the popular Web browser. The most serious flaws could allow an attacker to gain full control over a victim's PC, the Mozilla Foundation said in a statement. Firefox 1.0 was released in November and has since been downloaded more than 27 million times.
