Firefox upgrade

Hope you guys have upgraded your Firefox browser. From Yahoo News :
The Mozilla Foundation has released a security patch to plug two security flaws in its popular Firefox browser.The flaws were found last week by security firm Secunia who deemed them "extremely critical." Mozilla recommends users upgrade to the latest version, Firefox 1.0.4, which is primarily a security update.
From Secunia :
Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in Firefox, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and compromise a user's system.
The fix : download and update to Firefox 1.0.4 from here. Updating is quick and simple.

Update : there is some excellent information from Firefox on browser security and the security benefits of the Mozilla architecture here.
