Tor Browser 8.5.2 Released

https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-852

I just downloaded it and am using it now! I like it so far!

It says it fixed a critical security issue: " A type confusion vulnerability can occur when manipulating JavaScript objects due to issues in Array.pop . This can allow for an exploitable crash. We are aware of targeted attacks in the wild abusing this flaw."

EDIT: Am I wrong, or are there lots of JavaScript exploits? I think this is something to get more familiar with!

There are many javascript exploits but there are also a lot of patches. It’s an ongoing race between 0-days and patches.
