Netscape tests security hole patches

Netscape is working to patch a newly discovered security hole in its Communicator browser that could expose users’ private files.

The vulnerability could allow hostile Web sites to obtain private information from visitors, including bookmarks and possibly other sites they have visited.

Netscape downplayed the seriousness of the hole, pointing out that even vulnerable files were not fully readable, but said it was testing a pair of potential fixes which would be added to an upcoming Communicator release.

A complete report is posted online at
