firefox security


Mozilla is the first web browser vendor to fix a vulnerability exploited at this year’s CanSecWest Pwn2Own contest. Just one week after a U.K.-based hacker known as “Nils” broke into a 64-bit Windows 7 machine with a Firefox vulnerability, the open-source group shipped Firefox 3.6.3 to plug the security hole.

The latest Firefox 3.6.3 update update fixes this critical security vulnerability in Firefox 3.6.2. This is a highly recommended update for all Firefox 3.6.2 users.

Mozilla has released Firefox 3.0.19 and Firefox 3.5.9 updates. Mozilla Developer News have said that Firefox 3.0.19 is the last and final security update for Firefox 3.0.x branch of Firefox. There will be no more updates available after this one. All users of Firefox 3.0.x are therefore encouraged to upgrade to the latest version, Firefox 3.6, by either downloading it from Firefox official site or by selecting “Check for Updates…” from the Help menu. Users of Firefox 3.5.x are also encouraged to update to Firefox 3.6.2

firefoxMozilla has updated Firefox to 3.5.3 version. Interested users can check the bug list that was fixed in Firefox 3.5.3. You can update to the latest version by using the inbuilt updater by clicking on the Help menu and then selecting Check for Updates option. Firefox will also automatically notify you about the update very soon.

You can also download the latest version from the following direct download links:

Some of them are already hosting the latest version of Mozilla Firefox 3.5.2 for all supported languages and operating systems while others are only showing the directory structure with no files yet.

Most probably, it is likely going to take at least a few hours more or even more than a day before all servers are distributed with the latest version.
