Just a few weeks ago, we told you about a potential vulnerability in Firefox that allowed the FBI to spy on you. But today, the news is better, but it still requires your immediate attention.
Firefox has issued patches for 10 security vulnerabilities. One of these is critical.
This one's related to four memory flaws that were found in the browser engine. Each of these bugs were known to cause the browser to suddenly crash.
"Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances," said a Mozilla representative. "We presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code."
Here's what you need to do: Firefox ordinarily updates itself when you open it; this is the default setting. But if it hasn't, visit mozilla.com/firefox for the latest version.
