Mozilla tackles two critical flaws with latest version of Firefox 67

In News

Mozilla has patched two crucial vulnerabilities in the latest version of its Firefox 67 browser, which boasts of better speed and privacy.

The most important vulnerability that it patched includes memory safety flaws that could allow hackers to take control of an affected system, a security bulletin issued by United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), said.

One of the critical bugs (CVE-2019-9800) affects the Firefox and the Firefox ESR browser in version 66. The Firefox ESR browser is its Extended Support Release version of Firefox, designed for mass deployments.

The second critical memory vulnerability (CVE-2019-9814), found in Firefox 66, could also be exploited to run arbitrary code, Mozilla sources said.

The technical specs of the bug have not yet been released. It is also not known whether these vulnerabilities can be exploited remotely, or whether they require local access to systems.
