Time to update your Firefox browser. Exploit found in the wild!

For Firefox users (Me!), Mozilla is urging users to update their browser to the latest version since a vulnerability was found. The issue was reported on the 5 August and a patch was released yesterday.

Yesterday morning, August 5, a Firefox user informed us that an advertisement on a news site in Russia was serving a Firefox exploit that searched for sensitive files and uploaded them to a server that appears to be in Ukraine. This morning Mozilla released security updates that fix the vulnerability. All Firefox users are urged to update to Firefox 39.0.3. The fix has also been shipped in Firefox ESR 38.1.1.

To check/update if you have the latest version (39.0.3), click on “Help” -> “About Firefox” -> Click on “Check for updates”.

Firefox 39 security update

It is better to be safe than sorry. Update now!
