Critical security flaws discovered in Netscape browsers
April 27, 2005
Internet security company Secunia has warned that an unpatched flaw in some versions of the Netscape browser could allow a hacker to enter into compromised systems.
The vulnerability is "highly critical," according to an advisory released by the Danish company 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. A patch has not been created, according to Secunia.
A Netscape representative recommended on Wednesday that people upgrade to version 8.0 of the software, which is based on Firefox code and should not be affected by the flaw.
Secunia's advice for dealing with the issue is to "use another product."
