Exclamation Attn: Firefox browser users

This just in from the support team for those of you who may be using Mozilla Firefox browser.

We just came across this and thought you all would like to know https://www.wordfence.com/blog/2016/...ox-0-day-wild/ There is a 0-day vulnerability with the latest Firefox updates. This means it is recommended that until a new update is released Firefox users switch to a different browser for the time being. This is an issue that Mozilla is aware of and hopefully they can fix it asap.

A zero-day (also known as zero-hour or 0-day or day zero) vulnerability is an undisclosed computer-software vulnerability that hackers can exploit to adversely affect computer programs, data, additional computers or a network.

Default Re: Attn: Firefox browser users

Hey folks,

Approx 4 hours after the exploit was announced, FireFox had a fix in place and put it into an update. Those with auto-update were seemingly unaffected.

Please ensure you are using the newest version of FireFox by going to the following:

Thanks,
