Mozilla pushes out new Firefox and Thunderbird: 8 security advisories, 3 critical fixes

A posting from Naked Security about Mozilla pushes out new Firefox and Thunderbird:  Not to be outdone by Microsoft’s and Adobe’s Patch Tuesday releases, Mozilla pushed out its latest browser and email client updates today. The Firefox browser goes to 21.0, on Android as well as on desktops. (You don’t install browsers on your servers, do you?) The Thunderbird email client is only available in an Extended Support Release these days, meaning it gets regular security patches but infrequent product enhancements; it hits 17.0.6. Microsoft’s May 2013 Internet Explorer updates included two patches for which the world was waiting with bated breath – one to fix a vulnerabilityexposed at the 2013 PWN2OWN competition, and a second to close amuch-publicised zero-day briefly found on a US government website at the end of April. Mozilla, on the other hand, fixed its own PWN2OWN-found flaws within 24 hours, so its last two updates, 20.0 and 21.0, have been largely proactive on the security front.
