Firefox Update fixes 0-day Vulnerability

The Mozilla Foundation just released Firefox 3.6.12 – and closed only 1 critical, previously unknown 0-day vulnerability in the web browser which was already actively abused on the Internet.

The issue became public just a day ago, the developers had the information since Monday this week though. Nevertheless the security hole got fixed in record time. The update is available through the automatic update system and can get manually installed by going to Firefox’ help-menu and clicking on “Check for updates”. Firefox users and administrators should install the update immediately to secure the computer.
