- RHSA-2019:0622-01 firefox-60.6.0-3.el7_6
- RHSA-2019:0623-01 firefox-60.6.0-3.el6_10
Both Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 are affected, and impacts both desktop, server & HPC node architectures. Mozilla Firefox is an open-source web browser, designed for standards compliance, performance, and portability.
Robert Brown, Director of Services said, “Firefox is by far the worlds most popular browser for Linux, and has been downloaded over 1 billion times. With such potential exposure we would recommend all browsers be updated within the next 24 hours. Critical vulnerabilities on Linux are not released often, so when they are you generally need to act quickly.”
