Firefox Releases Another Security Patch

If you upgraded your Firefox last week, It’s time to upgrade again. Mozilla released another security update on April 1st, Firefox 3.6.3. This patch plugs a hole exposed in the CanSecWest Pwn2Own security contest last month.

Firefox is the first company to release security updates to patch vulnerabilities exposed in the contest:

“Just one week after a U.K.-based hacker known as “Nils” broke into a 64-bit Windows 7 machine with a Firefox vulnerability, the open-source group shipped Firefox 3.6.3 to plug the security hole.”
