Zero-day vulnerability in Firefox (8th January 2020)

Mozilla said last Wednesday that it patched a zero-day vulnerability in the Firefox browser that could allow hackers to take over target systems. The patch is available in the newly released Firefox 72.0.1 and Firefox ESR 68.4.1 updates.

Attackers could exploit the vulnerability to gain access and control over systems running Firefox.

Mozilla and the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) both said that attackers have exploited this vulnerability in the wild. That’s why CISA advised all Firefox users to “apply the necessary updates” in its own advisory.

People who use Firefox browser should make sure they are updated to version 72.0.1 by by clicking the “About Firefox” option in the Help (Windows) and Firefox (macOS) section of the menu bar.
