Update Firefox now! Fix rushed out for an exploit that steals files off your hard drive

Uh-Oh...I've been using Chrome and Vivaldi as my main browsers but I still use FF from time to time and now I might use it just a bit less. I mean...WOW!

Late Thursday night, Mozilla released a security patch for the Firefox browser after finding a  serious vulnerability being exploited in the wild. The vulnerability allows malicious attackers to use some JavaScript magic to “search for and upload potentially sensitive” from your hard drive to their servers.

Mozilla is asking all Firefox users to upgrade immediately to version 39.0.3. Anyone on the Firefox Extended Support release via their school or business should upgrade to version 38.1.1.
