With the update to version 9.0, several critical vulnerabilities have been patched in the Firefox browser.

"One critical flaw in previous versions of the browser allows an embedded OGG video element of 'extreme' size to cause a crash that can potentially be exploited to inject malicious code," The H Security reports.

"The vulnerabilities also exist in previous versions of the SeaMonkey 'all-in-one Internet suite' and are addressed in the SeaMonkey 2.6 update," the article states. "The Thunderbird email client is vulnerable, but only the first vulnerability mentioned is rated as critical."
