Users of the Firefox browser are being advised to update their browser following the release of two new security patches from Mozilla.
Mozilla is recommending that users update as soon as possible, although users of the Firefox 3 and 3.5 versions can sit back a just wait, as the system will issue them with an automated message over the next couple of days.
For those users who feel that they simply cannot wait for Mozilla to get in touch, then the process is simple.
Click on Help in the browser and look for the “Check for Updates” feature, simply click on that and the system will do the rest for you.
The flaws can allow a hacker to run malicious code on a user’s computer, let the hacker gain access to secured data on the computer, or the hacker could issue fake updates to Firefox.
