Mozilla Fixes Firefox Security Flaws Which Put Sensitive Bitcoin Data at Risk

There is a very good reason security experts have been warning about disclosing financial information over the Internet.  Not only because a user’s PC could get hacked or infected with a  keylogger rather easily in most cases, but also because the browsers we use on a daily basis are riddled with security flaws.

Thanks jdebunt, I wanted to read that. As far as I know coinyoo is legit, but I hold more trust in malware bytes than some weird btc site. Actually, a btc news site would be ideal for infecting computers with btc stealing malware. Coinyoo goes on my list of "banned" sites.
Anyways, the article is essentially click bait. Very thin on news very little info. Firefox has vulnerabilities (no news there) Firefox devs are working to fix said vulnerabilities (gosh)

Ironic how someone is using this to spread malware. Makes sense actually. Wham bam flim flam!

Well it is a good thing I do not use Firefox any more. Since it went into the version 20 something stopped using it because it got slower even tho making claims it meant to improve as things got updated and changed. Since the early days of Firefox it was good fast and a lot better. Out come Chrome and it was the same for that was good but bloated with junk. Am using and sticking to Comodo that is a light weight version of Chrome and even do a version of Firefox but sill firefox was good now stopped using, and all the more to stop using if their security flaws in it that puts bitcoin at risk fk that.

The flaw would only affect those using web-based wallets or exchanges, correct?
If you are using cold storage or other secure methods, I presume your coins will still be safe.

"People who use an exchange or web wallet to store their coins should always have two-factor authentication enabled.  In doing so, an attacked could not breach their account directly, even if they had access to the username and password."

The only people who would have been in danger, are the people who used web wallets or exchanges without two-factor authentication enabled... if you did that, you were asking for trouble.

I would rather use firefox than a browser like Crome or IE that reports directly to the government masters.  Wink
