The Mozilla Foundation has released an updated version of Firefox following the discovery of multiple security vulnerabilities involving the popular browser software.
The flaws create a means for hackers to conduct cross-site scripting or to otherwise seize control of vulnerable systems.
Firefox fans are urged to upgrade to version 220.127.116.11 of the browser software in order to guard against security attacks.
A related set of vulnerabilities - along with a security bug involving the processing of vCard attachments - mean Thunderbird email client and Mozilla SeaMonkey application suite users also need to upgrade to version 18.104.22.168 and version 1.0.3 of these software packages, respectively, as explained here and here. ®
