Firefox internet browser can be hacked, U.S. Homeland Security warns

If you use Mozilla Firefox on your computer as an internet browser to access websites, listen up: this is serious!

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is urging users to update to the latest version.

Older versions of Mozilla Firefox contain a vulnerability that could allow for hackers to take control of a computer's operating system on both Windows and Mac. A critical-level security advisory was issued by both Mozilla and the U.S. government.

Update your browser by launching Firefox and clicking on Options > Advanced > Update.

The safe browser version is Firefox 72.0.1 and Firefox ESR 68.4.1 or higher.
