The Indian government has issued a warning to users of Google Chrome OS and Mozilla Firefox.

  • Older versions of Mozilla Firefox and Chrome OS are said to be affected.
  • Google and Mozilla have asked users to install updates immediately.
  • The attacker can run arbitrary code on affected systems

After issuing a security advisory to Apple customers, the Indian government has now issued two further security advisories, exposing “several security flaws” in Mozilla Products and Google Chrome OS. These alerts were issued by the CERT-In, which is part of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.

An vulnerability targeting the Safari browser impacted Apple devices, allowing the attacker to send users to “maliciously created online content.” However, the vulnerabilities in both of these recent incidents are distinct.


“Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla products,” according to a security alert released on June 6 by CERT-In. “These vulnerabilities could allow a remote hacker to disclose sensitive information, bypass security restrictions, execute arbitrary code, perform spoofing attacks, and cause a denial of service (DoS) attack on the targeted system.”

For Chrome OS users, things aren’t much different. According to the OS release, exploiting the vulnerabilities discovered might allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the targeted system. This implies that users of earlier versions of either of these pieces of software run the danger of serious consequences.

According to CERT’s official announcement, the following versions of Mozilla and Chrome OS are affected:

Mozilla Firefox:

–  Mozilla Firefox iOS version prior to 101,
–    Mozilla Firefox Thunderbird version prior to 91.10,
–    Mozilla Firefox ESR version prior to 91.10, and
–    Mozilla Firefox version prior to 101

Google Chrome OS:

Google Chrome versions prior to 96.0.4664.209
