The new edition of Mozilla Firefox is said to fix the latest security vulnerabilities.

Experts at SophosLabs™, Sophos's global network of virus and spam analysis centres, have advised businesses and home users to update their version of the Mozilla Firefox web browser, in order to protect against critical security flaws.

"Firefox is proving a popular alternative web browser to Microsoft Internet Explorer, particularly for those concerned about online security. Just like users of Internet Explorer, however, Firefox users need to keep their software up-to-date to protect against vulnerabilities," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos.

More information about the new version of Firefox can be found on Mozilla's website.

Sophos continues to recommend computer users practise safe computing as well as running up-to-date anti-virus software.
