Netscape upgrade claims to fix email bug by Angela Soane The new version of Netscape Communicator released yesterday includes a fix for the recent email bug that worried Net security experts.
The flaw, known as ?long filename vulnerability?, was discovered last month and allowed people to send email messages that could crash a user?s PC or launch a virus-infected code. Netscape said there were no reported incidents but is recommending customers upgrade to Communicator 4.06.
The latest version of the browser also introduces Smart Browsing which allows users to find information easier on the Internet by using keywords.
It also includes integrated JDK 1.1 support for Java developers, built-in Macromedia Flash plug-in and a Eudora Import utility for Mac users.
