The Mozilla Foundation has released a patch for a critical security hole in its open source Firefox browser.
The bug could be used by remote attackers to crash the browser or install their own malicious code on users’ machines.
The Firefox 22.214.171.124 update fixes the vulnerability, which was found in Firefox 126.96.36.199 – itself only issued in mid-April.
