Mozilla has today released a new version of Firefox that includes patches against Specter, the vulnerability known to processors yesterday. Thanks to Specter, privacy-sensitive information such as passwords can be stolen by, for example, a website.
Yesterday it became known that there are two vulnerabilities in processors in the form of Meltdown and Specter, as a result of which sensitive information such as passwords can potentially be stolen. There are patches for control systems before the meltdown, while there are no patches against Specter yet. Mozilla released a new version of their browser with Firefox 57.0.4 in which protection against Specter is included.
