Firefox 220.127.116.11 was released this afternoon to patch the QuickTime issue described here. This will protect Firefox users from the public critical security vulnerability until a patch is available from Apple. I would like to personally thank the individuals at Apple who worked with us and the engineers at Mozilla that work so hard to get security updates out so quickly.
This issue was patched in only six (or 6.25 according to John O’Duinn) days. When a vendor ships security fixes quickly, it lowers the incentive for attackers to spend time developing and deploying an exploit for that issue. The window of opportunity for attackers is reduced and so is the potential to compromise users. So thanks you guys, for helping destroy the economics of malicious exploit development.
