Alert Priority High

Users and administrators should apply new security updates to the Mozilla Foundation’s Firefox, Firefox ESR, SeaMonkey and Thunderbird products to protect their computer systems from being compromised.

The Mozilla Foundation has issued the updates to address multiple vulnerabilities in these products. A remote attacker can potentially exploit these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected system, according to US-CERT.

The available updates include:

  • Firefox 35
  • Firefox ESR 31.4
  • SeaMonkey 2.32
  • Thunderbird 31.4

The security advisories are available at Firefox, Firefox ESR, SeaMonkey, and Thunderbird. We recommend you review and apply the updates as quickly as possible.
