Mozilla recently released its first security update for Firefox 4, fixing two vulnerabilities.

"Issued April 28, the update bumped Firefox up to version 4.0.1," writes SecurityNewsDaily's Matt Liebowitz. "In the process, Mozilla took care of two bundles of malicious code that could have been remotely exploited to bypass computers' security features and used in attacks, the company announced in a blog."


"One of the flaws, the security firm Sophos pointed out, was specifically engineered to target Firefox users on Mac's OS X operating system," Liebowitz writes.
