Critical Firefox Update

The Mozilla folks have released a new version of Firefox,, that fixes several security flaws. Among the flaws is a widely publicized and easily exploited flaw that allows the theft of cookies from other websites. The theft of these cookies could allow a malicious person to login to websites that you visit such as online banking websites. We recommend you upgrade as soon as possible. To see your version of Firefox, enter "about:" into the URL bar (without the quotes).

To update Firefox, go to the "Help->Check for updates..." menu or follow this link.

[Note from the sponsor: eSoft's Intrusion Prevention Softpak protects users from exploits of the mentioned flaw.]
