Last week it was Internet Explorer patching critical browser vulnerabilities. This time it’s Firefox’s turn to jump into the ring. Yesterday Firefox issued an announcement for those using the popular web browser to go directly to update to patch up some security holes.
This latest security issues addressed in this Firefox 6.0 update patch 10 various security holes, 8 of which are rated “critical”. If cyber criminals try hard enough, the kinds of holes left open here can be used to downloads and install malicious software to your computer. All without you knowing and despite you doing anything more than innocently browsing the net (like you always do). These kinds of attacks are known as drive-by downloads (or drive-by installs).
Don’t leave yourself open to a drive-by cyber attack. Patch the critical browser vulnerabilities. Update Firefox.
