Firefox users, take heed. Mozilla, it’s creator, recently released version 67.0.3 of the browser, and you may want to download this instant if you haven’t already done so.
The latest version comes with an emergency patch that addresses a zero-day flaw that is Firefox says is currently being exploited to no end by unscrupulous characters. The zero-day exploit was discovered by Samuel Groß, a security researcher working with Google Project Zero, and Coinbase Security team.
Groß further explained that the bug can also be exploited for remote code execution (RCE), but in order for hackers to do that, they would need a separate “sandbox escape” to do so. There’s no additional details about the flaw beyond the announcement, but both Groß and Mozilla suspect that the exploit was aimed at cryptocurrency owner. Not surprising, given that the value of the Bitcoin has risen, with its value currently hovering between the RM35000 and RM40000 mark.
In any case, you can download the new Firefox version via the official Mozilla download portal.
