Mozilla pulls Firefox 16 to address security issue
| by Ramkumar Iyer |
It has not even been two days since Firefox 16 was launched, and Mozilla has pulled the Firefox 16 installer from the site’s download page citing what is apparently a serious security issue in the latest instalment of the browser. According to a post on the Mozilla Security Blog by Michael Coates, Director of Security Assurance, Mozilla, the vulnerability could allow a malicious site to potentially determine which websites users have visited and have access to the URL or URL parameters. Coates goes on to state that the company has no indication that this vulnerability is currently being exploited.
Pulled barely two days after release.
