이번 업데이트에서는 Mozilla Firefox 웹 브라우저를 이용한 파일 다운로드 시 악성 파일에 대한 보호 기능을 강화하였습니다.

 

 

보안 설정에서는 "위험하고 사기성있는 내용을 차단"하는 항목을 통해 위험한 다운로드 및 의도하지 않고 일반적이지 않은 소프트웨어에 대한 경고를 하도록 개선되었습니다.

 

대표적으로 다운로드된 파일이 위험하거나 경고가 필요한 경우에는 다운로드 아이콘 영역에 붉은색 느낌표가 표시됩니다.

 

다운로드 메뉴를 클릭할 경우 위험한 파일은 폴더 연결 아이콘이 표시되지 않으며 위험한 파일임을 쉽게 알 수 있도록 표시하고 있습니다.

 

그 외 세부적인 수정 사항에 대해서는 Mozilla Firefox 48.0 Release Note 내용을 참고하시기 바랍니다.
