Default Mozilla / Firefox users warned upgrade now

Users have been urged to upgrade to the latest versions of Mozilla's software to protect themselves from a series of critical security holes.

The Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) warned on Monday that earlier versions of Firefox, and other Mozilla software based on Firefox code, contain a clutch of vulnerabilities that expose users to attack.

According to security firm Secunia, there are a total of 21 (TWENTY ONE) flaws in the older versions of Firefox, such as Firefox 1.5, some of which it described as critical.

Firefox should have updated itself, to 1.5.0.2.
