Mozilla recently released updates for its Firefox web browser. That includes 3 fixes that are identified as critical.

This came after another security hole was detected in almost all version of Internet Explorer. The patches are for the two critical holes that allows attackers to run a script wherein the script or code from another web site that should not be run on another are successfully executed. The vulnerability was classified as HIGH, which means, it can be use to gather information from the other site that the user is accessing or inject date or code into those site and this can be done more even if you are just doing your normal web browsing.
