Firefox 20.0 was released today.
The buglist page enumerates 3054 official changes, with eleven patched vulnerabilities, three at "Critical" level.
Paul Ducklin takes a quick look...
Mozilla and Google have already pushed out patches to stop the exploits that got past their browsers at this year's PWN2OWN competition!
That certainly throws down the gauntlet to Microsoft, whose Internet Explorer 10 browser was also successfully breached in the competition.
PWN2OWN 2013 finished off today.
A second scheduled attack on IE 10 didn't happen, so IE 10 didn't get owned again, but Flash and Reader fell once each, and Java was exploited for the fourth time in two days...
Of the Big Four browsers, only Apple's Safari has so far survived the onslaught of the browser-breakers at PWN2OWN 2013.
Java fell three times today; Adobe's Flash and Reader meet their attackers tomorrow...
Only six weeks to go until PWN2OWN 2013, where you can hack the Big Four browsers and the Big Three plugins, and win over half a million dollars.
But is it just about the money?
Paul Ducklin investigates...
Firefox's version 18 gets an update to 18.0.1.
The new point release mops up three bugs, all of them no doubt annoying to those affected, but none of them security related.
Over the past five days, lots of you have used Naked Security to find out how to turn off Java in one of the five major browsers.
And that has given us browser statistics. There are too many variables to know what they tell us, but they do make a neat-looking graph!
After the recent discovery of a zero-day vulnerability in Oracle's Java Web Start plugin Apple and Mozilla are now disabling Java by default until fixes are made available.
Italian security researcher Andrea Micalizzi has recently reported a vulnerability in the latest Foxit PDF plugin for Firefox.
Paul Ducklin examines the situation and gives a simple workaround.
Firefox 18 has landed: 2917 bugs patched, 21 security fixes, 12 critical.
Firefox 17.0 is out.
The new version fixes an officially-listed 2365 bugs and covers six critical advisories. It also drops support for OS X Leopard and earlier.
The latest beta release of Mozilla's popular Firefox browser has introduced a new social media API. Can a web browser make it easier to use social media while protecing your privacy? Mozilla hopes so.
Firefox version 16.0 came out, but turned out to have a vulnerability, so it's already been dropped.
If you've already updated, however, 16.0 thinks it's current and will tell you so. You need to downgrade to 15.0.1 - that may not be obvious, but it's easy when you know how.
Opera, a relative minnow in the web browser market, is reckoned to be a more secure browser than the likes of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer - according to our online poll.
But maybe someone has influenced the vote?
As browser makers beef up security in their products - which product do you recommend to friends who want to surf the web more safely?
The latest version of the Firefox browser fixes a critical security hole Naked Security reported on in June, and makes the browser’s silent update feature even stealthier.
Although ordered to let Windows users choose which browser they would prefer, a Microsoft "technical error" meant 28 million Windows 7 users were given no choice at all.
The upcoming releases of Internet Explorer 10, Firefox 14 and Chrome 21 are all fighting for our attention and using security as the reason why.
