Tech News: Fix for the Firefox 3.5.1 Security hole

Written by | Tech

Just weeks after Firefox 3.5 has been released, now they released a fix for the security hole that was caused by a error in the way JavaScript code is processed. The security hole was categorized as “critical” because the vulnerability allows malicious coder to create a Web site that can execute code on the user’s computer.

Mozilla Developer Center:

As part of the Mozilla Corporation’s ongoing security and stability process, Firefox 3.5.1 is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux users as a free download from www.firefox.com.

We strongly recommend that all Firefox 3.5 users upgrade to this latest release. If you already have Firefox 3.5, you will receive an automated update notification within 24 to 48 hours. This update can also be applied manually by selecting “Check for Updates…” from the Help menu.

For a list of changes and more information, please see the Firefox 3.5.1 release notes.

This update is not supported by old version of firefox, that is why it is highly recommended that users upgrade to the latest version of FireFox 3.5.1
