Mozilla Firefox has released a security update which is so important that even the Department of Homeland Security says you should download it. Mozilla Firefox has been dealing with a serious vulnerability that hackers were exploiting that serious bug in the browser to take over computers.
However, it remains unclear how the hackers were exploiting the bug, but they likely created a malicious website to trigger the flaw and then tricked unsuspecting users into visiting it.
To let you remain safe from being exploited, you should update to Firefox version 72.0.1; enterprise users on Firefox ESR should be on version 68.4.1. Update by going to the “About Firefox” option in the browser, which is under the “Help” tab for Windows users and the “Firefox” tab for Mac users. It’s also possible the browser may have already initiated an automatic update. However, it is advised you to check this manually.
