With recent vulnerabilities discovered in browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, CERT India is advising Indian internet users to keep their browsers updated to avoid being victims of cyber criminal.
A cyber security expert told PTI "The two web browsers are an important tool for Internet surfing among Indian online consumers. The anomalies have been detected recently and it would be advised that users upgrade their existing versions sooner than later. These activities are mischiefs on part of hackers or they are harmful viruses,"

According to CERT In, several vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey which could allow remote attacker to bypass certain security restrictions, disclose potentially sensitive information, gain escalated privileges, execute arbitrary code and causes denial of service condition on the affected system.
In Google Chrome, vulnerabilities could be exploited to cause denial of service condition or execute arbitrary code on the target system.
We advise all our readers to update their browsers from the official website of each browser.
