The update patches critical flaw (CVE-2019-11707), a type confusion vulnerability in the Mozilla Firefox code that Tor uses.

Tor Browser has updated to version 8.5.2, to address a critical security flaw in Mozilla’s Firefox browser that is under active exploit in the wild.

The critical flaw (CVE-2019-11707) is a type confusion vulnerability in the Array.pop, which is an array method that is used in JavaScript objects in Firefox. The vulnerability, which was disclosed and patched earlier this week, enables cybercriminals to take full control of systems running the vulnerable Firefox versions.
