It seems that not only Internet Explorer has security bugs. This time is Firefox time to release an update to fix a security bug.
It seems that this bug could let an outsider commandeer a vulnerable computer.
So, Firefox release a new version of the browser, version released on Thursday. The version 184.108.40.206 will be available to the Firefox users as an update in the next two days.
“We’re identifying this as a critical release, and we’re strongly recommending that everyone update as soon as possible,” Mike Schroepfer, vice president of engineering at Mozilla, said in a statement. “This is one of the most stable releases we have ever delivered. It proactively addresses a wide range of security, performance and stability issues we have identified, using the very latest tools and techniques,” he said.
Mozilla recommends that Firefox 1.0 users upgrade to this latest release of Firefox 1.5. This version has an automated update mechanism to help people keep their systems up-to-date, thus allowing them to browse always safe.
This move comes after Microsoft launched a megapack for its Internet Explorer that fixed 10 vulnerabilities.
This new update introduces some stability enhancements and includes native support for Macs powered by Intel processors.
