The United States Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has issued a notification that "encourages" users and administrators to update the Mozilla Firefox web browser. This, despite Firefox releasing a significant program update, to version 72, on January 7. So, what is the reason for this level of Government agency interest and, indeed, the urgency in the language used?

A critical zero-day vulnerability that can enable a threat actor to take control of users' computers.

A critical zero-day vulnerability that is being actively exploited in the wild.
