Mozilla Firefox Released Shortly

Shortly after the release of Mozilla Firefox last fortnight, the next version of Mozilla Firefox has gone public. Obviously something must have gone wrong in that previous version, and thus a quick patch is made and released within such a short period of time.

As expected, below are the security fixes to this version:

  • - Unescaped URIs passed to external programs
  • - Privilege escalation through chrome-loaded about:blank windows

It is vital to keep your Firefox browser patched, so update to this version as soon as possible!

You can either upgrading directly from the browser by clicking under Help > Check for Updates… or download the installation setup from the Mozilla server.

Security Updates on Drupal 5.2 and 4.7.7

Posted in Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows


Drupal 4.7.7 and 5.2 are now available for download. These latest release are made available in conjunction to security updates and bug fixes which have been troubling previous versions of Drupal software.

It is highly recommended that users perform a full upgrade as the patches do not contain the many additional bugfixes that went into the releases. Applying the patches will leave the site in a somewhat unversioned state, but at least secure.

Apologies to all SoftSift readers. As you know, I have not kept this site going for a period of time, but I am trying to make up to it. I have been abroad for the last couple of weeks on a business trip, so my work has kept me quite busy. Nonetheless, do rest assure that I have not left SoftSift readers on the lurch.

This post, for the first time in many days, is to introduce you about the latest release of Mozilla Firefox

This release is more about security issues, which has been fixed in this version. See below for more information:
