Firefox security patch released

Users of Mozilla's Firefox may have already discovered that the application required a code update over the past couple of days. If the application hasn't already run the update, then shut down your browser and restart it, or click on "Help" and "Check for Updates."

According to some reports, vulnerabilities have been exposed which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions, disclose sensitive information, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, or potentially compromise a user's system. Check out Firefox 3.0.5 release notes for more information.
