Default Mozilla issues Firefox & Thunderbird security updates

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...s-1200543.html

Following delays due to a startup crash regression, the Mozilla project development team has issued updates for the Firefox web browser and for the Thunderbird news and email client to close multiple critical security vulnerabilities affecting these products.

According to the developers, the Firefox updates address a total of ten issues, including eight critical security bugs, one high risk and one moderate problem. Many of the issues, such as crashes caused by corrupted JPEG images, memory corruption during text run construction, or buffer overflows in the JavaScript engine, could potentially lead to the remote execution of arbitrary code on a victim's system.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
