Heads up if you are using Firefox...

If you use the Mozilla Firefox web browser, the government recommends that you update the browser because of a zero-day vulnerability that could enable hackers to take control of your computer.

The United States Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is encouraging those with the Firefox browser to update to versions 72.0.1 and ESR 68.4.1.

Saw that.  Fortunately, I'd just updated to the newest version shortly before reading the article.  (So I'm safe forever. ::)
