Pale Moon Version 28.8.1 Updated with Security Updates
« on: January 11, 2020, 07:35:30 PM »
Pale Moon has been updated to version 28.8.1.  This is an important security and stability release. In addition to fixes identified as "DiD*, the update addresses CVE-2019-17026, which is being actively exploited.  Please update your browser to this version as soon as possible.

*A fix identified as "DiD" ("Defense-in-Depth") means that it is a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.

Thanks. I usually wait for an update to be offered. But since this addresses an active exploit, I initiated the update this time.

It is one thing when an update has general fixes but when security updates are involved, it isn't a good idea to wait too long.
