DHS: Exploits Out for Firefox Holes
The US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), a cyber-security outfit that's part of the Department of Homeland Security, says that it has received information that several new exploits have been released that could let bad guys take advantage of recently patched security flaws in Mozilla's Firefox Web browser.
It doesn't say much else in its advisory, except that Firefox users should upgrade to the latest version - 1.0.5 - as soon as possible. If you're not sure what version of Firefox you are using, click on the "Help" pulldown menu, and then click on "About Mozilla Firefox." The version number shouldl be right under the big, red "Firefox."
If you need instructions on how to update, see my blog post from Wednesday on this.
