Firefox 0 Day Vulnerability

safety-bulletinA vulnerability has been identified in the Firefox web browser which could potentially leave your Windows PC open to attack. This is a 0 day vulnerability, meaning it is new and has as yet not been patched by the Firefox developers. While they are working on a fix the recommended course of action is to use a different web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome or Safari.

If you use Firefox, we recommend you temporarily switch browsers to Chrome, Safari or a non-firefox based browser that is secure until the Firefox dev team can release an update. The vulnerability allows an attacker to execute code on your Windows workstation. The exploit is in the wild, meaning it’s now public and every hacker on the planet has access to it. There is no fix at the time of this writing.
