The Mozilla Firefox browser contains a critical vulnerability, which uses Javascript objects to incur type confusion.

The so-called "zero-day exploit," which was discovered by Coinbase Security and Samuel Groß, a security researcher with Google, can be used to run attacker code and install software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing.

Moreover, Firefox has rated this exploit in its highest category: "Critical Impact — Vulnerability can be used to run attacker code and install software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing."

Han Yoon, Founder & CEO of Lunar Digital Assets, states 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.

Earlier, Mozilla presented a new update with protection against fingerprinting and cryptomining to bring fast and private together right at the crossroads of performance and security.
