On its official blog, Mozilla said: 'The vulnerability could allow a malicious website to identify the websites users visit and handle URLs or URL parameters. At this point, we have not seen exploited vulnerabilities'.

Currently, Mozilla has removed the Firefox 16.0 Final installation file from its website and temporarily replaced it with Firefox 15.0.1.

In addition, the company also promises to release an update to fix Firefox 16.0's vulnerability soon, probably tomorrow.
