Mozilla Firefox browser users have been warned. This warning has been issued by the government agency Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In). CERT-In has reported that several flaws have been found in the Mozilla Firefox browser, which hackers can take advantage of.
According to the report, due to the flaws present in Mozilla products, hackers can be helped in executing security restrictions, spoof attacks, sensitive information, arbitrary code. All Mozilla Firefox Internet browser versions that are not on the latest Firefox 98 may be affected by this flaw.
Apart from this, versions before Mozilla Firefox ESR 91.7 version and versions before Mozilla Firefox Thunderbird 91.7 version can be targeted by hackers due to this flaw.
CERT-In has issued a warning saying that users should immediately update the Mozilla Firefox version to the latest Firefox 98, Firefox ESR 91.7 and Thunderbird 91.7. This drawback is due to text reflow and thread shutdown.
CERT-In has said in its latest advisory that users with older versions of Mozilla Firefox are not safe due to multiple bugs. For this reason, they should update their Mozilla Firefox browser to the latest version as soon as possible.
According to CERT-In, hackers can remotely target the victim by taking advantage of these flaws. For this, users are asked to visit specially crafted links or websites. After taking advantage of the loophole, attackers can remotely bypass security restrictions to get the necessary information.
