Firefox under fire from multiple security bugs
21 reasons to update Mozilla software
The Mozilla Foundation has warned of a slew of critical vulnerabilities to its popular Firefox web browser and related products. The most serious of the flaws create a means for hackers to inject malware onto vulnerable systems. Other flaws would make it easier to construct phishing attacks or swipe sensitive information from PCs running Firefox.
Users are advised to upgrade to Mozilla Firefox 22.214.171.124, Mozilla Thunderbird 126.96.36.199, or SeaMonkey 1.0.1 to guard against attack. A security update to the Thunderbird email client (version 188.8.131.52) is due to be released on Tuesday. ®
