Just seen this http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/security/3404407/f... so if you upgraded any PCs to FF16 then roll them back to FF15 ASAP. So to downgrade get the Firefox 15.0.1 installable and run that. It will seem as if you are upgrading but it will roll back to 15.0.1 safely with no loss of data or settings.

PSI will report an insecurity in FF but you will have to ignore that until Mozilla issue an updated and fixed version of FF.

HI ,

Mozilla Firefoxversion 15.x suffers from a more/"highly" crtical unpatched vulnerability in SA50856 :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/50856/

I would say that the best (current) solution is to make sure you :

either use an alternative browser (note that IE8 has a well known vulnerability of similar criticality to the one in version 16.x .)

or use your best safe browsing rules and avoid visiting unqualified sites where possible .

Take care

Anthony
