Mozilla Issues another Patch for Zero-Day Vulnerability

Mozilla Issues another Patch for Zero-Day Vulnerability

Although Mozilla issued an urgent security patch recently to address Firefox’s zero-day vulnerability just days earlier, the organization has now issued a different patch to address another zero-day flaw.

According to the Mozilla, this vulnerability was targeted towards Coinbase employees and other cryptocurrency organizations. As a result, it poses serious threats to Firefox users who are associated with Cryptocurrency organizations.

According to a report from ZDnet,  due to the vulnerability, Coinbase employees would receive phishing emails with links to malicious website. If someone clicks on the links, Firefox would download an executable that would scrap user data such as browser passwords.

However, you don’t need to worry about the vulnerability anymore as Mozilla has fixed the problem with the latest patch. If you haven’t done so already, you should install the latest versions of Firefox. According to Mozilla if you are using Firefox 67.0.4 and Firefox ESR 60.7.2, you don’t need to perform any other task to be completely secure.
