Multiple security holes found in Firefox

Know anything about this, John, Seamus? Multiple security holes found in Firefox. I had an older version, but 'check for updates' from Help menu didn't suggest I download the newer one.

There have been no known actual occurrances of such attacks yet, and probably won't be since there's an update already out there. I recommend you upgrade to the latest version manually anyway The newest versions should prompt you when there's another update.

If you'd thought about temporarily switching back to Internet Explorer for safety, please note that there are currently about 30 unpatched holes in IE, so I wouldn't recommend it...

Great, thanks Seamus. Have upgraded now.
