"Mozilla has rushed out updates to plug a few critical holes in versions 2 and 3 of its popular open source Firefox browser.
Firefox 3.0.5 fixes three critical security flaws in the browser, while 126.96.36.199 stitches four critical vulns.
The bugs in the browser could have been “used to run attacker code and install software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing,” said Mozilla.
It also once again urged users to upgrade from Firefox 2.0 because version 188.8.131.52 is the final release of updates for the browser."
The following issues were addressed according to the Security Advisories page for firefox.
