Specifically, the first vulnerability was discovered by the Italian hacker Giudo Landi and is related to a bug in the browser to execute malicious XML file and the second was reported by Nils, a participant of the competition Pwn2Own. (competition which aims to discover new security flaws in the three most popular operating systems: Windows, Mac and Ubuntu).Where Nills hacked Safari,IE8 and Firefox using these flaws.

In this way, it is recommended to upgrade immediately through the Help menu> Check for updates or download the new version manually.
