On the heels of the Firefox 67.0 release, Mozilla has rolled out Firefox 67.0.3, which fixes a major security bug. According to the Mozilla Security board, hackers have reportedly been using the bug to take over PCs running unpatched versions of Firefox 67.0. All Firefox users should update to the latest version immediately to protect themselves from the exploit, which is easy enough to do: download the latest version of the browser directly from Mozilla, or click on the hamburger icon in the upper-right corner, then Help, then About Firefox.

Originally reported to Mozilla by members of Google Project Zero and Coinbase Security, the bug lets hackers use manipulated javascript code to trick users into visiting websites that deploy malicious code onto their PCs. This is a serious vulnerability, and the Mozilla Security board is urging all users to install the updates immediately—It’s even bad enough that the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has even gotten involved in spreading the word about the patch.

Firefox may be one of the best mainstream web browsers for security and privacy-minded users these days, but clearly, even it can succumb to unforeseen exploits. Install the above patch and make sure your fellow Firefox users do the same.
