MS-ISAC ADVISORY NUMBER: 2018-139
DATE(S) ISSUED: 12/11/2018

OVERVIEW:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox and Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR), the most severe of which could allow for arbitrary code execution. Mozilla Firefox is a web browser used to access the Internet. Mozilla Firefox ESR is a version of the web browser intended to be deployed in large organizations. Successful exploitation of the most severe of these vulnerabilities could allow for arbitrary code execution. Depending on the privileges associated with the user, an attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights.

THREAT INTELLIGENCE:
There are currently no reports of these vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild.

SYSTEMS AFFECTED:
  • Mozilla Firefox versions prior to 64
  • Mozilla Firefox ESR version prior to 60.4

I use Chrome for years: more secure and also more stable. Maybe Chrome uses more RAM but when we talk about browsers security is more important than resources usage.

I have avoided Chrome because I suspect Google are out to steal your personal data. Its not easy to automatically delete history etc either.

Am I correct about that ?
