Mozilla is preparing to release Firefox 3.6.2, which will address a critical
security vulnerability present in Firefox 3.6. The vulnerability in question,
was reported by security researcher Evgeny Legerov last month. However, his
initial reluctance to directly communicate with Mozilla prolonged the
development time for the patch.
The vulnerability has been rated by Secunia as highly critical and can by
exploited by hackers to execute arbitrary code on the user’s system. It is not
known if there are any in-the-wild exploits for this vulnerability.
