Flaw in Netscape

Unread postby Bertha » April 30th, 2005, 5:02 pm

Hey anyone running Netscape as their browser:

From Bullguard

An unpatched flaw in some versions of the Netscape browser could let an attacker into vulnerable systems, CNET reports. http://news.com.com/Highly+critical+fla ... 85688.html?

The vulnerability is "highly critical," according to an advisory released by the Danish security company Secunia late Tuesday. Version 6.2.3 and 7.2 of Netscape are affected and other versions may also be susceptible, the company said.

The flaw could allow a hacker to launch a buffer overflow attack, which could crash the browser or enable the attacker to execute code on the compromised system.

Secunia's advice for dealing with the issue is to "use another product."
