|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.
Earlier this week, as reported by
Sophos, Mozilla said it was "working aggressively" to fix the
problems and has now released version 1.0.4 of the increasingly
popular web browser.
"Firefox has proven a popular alternative web browser for
internet users, 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.

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