Firefox Security Fix

Latest response

I see that on RHEL 7.6 Firefox has updated to 60.7.2 and includes the latest two security fixes (CVE-2019-11707 & CVE-2019-11708) but my RHEL 8.0 is stuck at 60.7.0 still. Is the update still in testing or do I have a problem with my updates? My account seems to think I am all up to date with errata but it seems odd the update made it through to 7.6 so much faster than 8.0.

Hi Ian,

No, you don't have a problem, the latest available version of firefox for RHEL 8.0 is (still) 60.7.0-1.el8.
I have no idea why the latest stable version 60.7.2 is not available for RHEL 8.0 yet, we have to wait. :)

OK thanks, just needed to make sure it wasn't just me.

You're welcome, Ian ! Let's hope that the fixed firefox version will be available soon ... :)
