Mozilla patches security bugs in Firefox

Mozilla officially released the stable version of Firefox 31 for all supported platforms, integrating 11 security fixes, three of them being marked as critical. One of the major vulnerabilities corrected would allow exploitation of a WebGL crash with Cesium JavaScript library. Details about this glitch are not available at the moment, but Mozilla notes that it cannot be leveraged through email in the Thunderbird client because scripting is disabled. Another flaw refers to a use-after-free vulnerability when handling DirectWrite font. Exploiting it would be possible on Windows platform only, OS X and Linux remaining unaffected. <more>
