Security Vulnerability with Firefox

There has been a little bit of publicity concerning a security breach in the very latest version of Firefox (v16). Apparently, a vulnerability has been discovered that can allow malicious users to find out what websites you have visited.

Mozilla has issued instructions on how to downgrade Firefox to V15.0.1 if you have already upgraded to version 16, although no users should have been automatically upgraded.

What’s my browser version?

Aside from this latest issue, it really is a good idea to keep your browsers (whichever ones you use – Firefox, Chrome, IE, Opera, etc) as up-to-date as possible. Just in case you’re not sure how to check which version of the browser you are using, here’s a quick video guide: (it refers to Firefox, but the principles are similar for other browsers).

    Thanks again

It looks like website spoof/phishing attempts are on the rise again. These fake emails look fairly genuine and it’s easy to accidentally click a link, but is it serious and what can the pitfalls be? How can I spot a fake LinkedIn invitation and how serious can it be?
