Firefox gets critical fix for HTML flaw!

 
 

It’s been reported that Mozilla has patched a rather nasty security bug in Firefox, this flaw affects people using version 56, 57 and 58. The CVSS 8.8 rated flaw means if a hacker can trick a user into opening a malicious document or link, they will gain some access to the machine. Something called Remote code execution will be available to the hackers, this will allow ransomware, spyware and other nasties to be installed and run on the victim’s machine.

The bug doesn’t seem to be present on Firefox for android systems or Firefox ESR. The fix for this critical flaw is version 58.0.1, if you have Firefox installed its recommended to check the version and make sure it’s the latest one.
