Microsoft Tuesday and Mozilla Firefox Updates Today

[ Edited ]


Microsoft is expected to release its monthly cycle of Windows critical/security updates today.   They usually become available at 1 PM Eastern Standard Time in the USA.

Use Windows/Automatic updates to determine which updates are applicable to your system.
Additional Info here:

------------------------------------------

In addition, Mozilla Firefox 8 is expected to be released today.

The biggest new feature is that Firefox itself now handles third party add-on installations to avoid security problems from sketchy extensions. Also included in the new version is built-in support to search Twitter messages in the browser's address bar.

Re: Microsoft Tuesday and Mozilla Firefox Updates Today

If you use Adobe Shockwave Player, you  have one more update today!  Information in my blog post at Adobe Releases Critical Update for Shockwave Player.

 

Not mentioned in the LifeHacker article is the information that the following security updates are included in the release of Firefox 8, in which MFSA 2011-48, MFSA 2011-49 and MFSA 2011-52 are rated Critical, with the other three updates rated High.
