Firefox 3.6.2 to be released March 30

In the past month, there has been lots of discussions involving an unpatched security vulnerability in Firefox 3.6.  Unfortunately, there was very limited information released on the vulnerability and much of the discussions revolved around if the reports were real or just FUD.  Mozilla eventually received enough information where they could reproduce the problem and posted an advisory late on 3/18/2010 (yes I know that I missed this being released yesterday, and I blame the NCAA tourney for that). 

In any case, Firefox 3.6.2 is scheduled for release on March 30, but the beta build is available from their nightly candidate area.  More information is located at Mozilla Security Blog. Please schedule some time to test this version and get this into your update pipeline for user workstations.
