Researchers reveal another Firefox flaw
« on: 27. July 2007., 21:27:48 »
Mozilla has produced a patch for yet another critical flaw in Firefox, the latest embarrassment in a lengthening list this month for the open-source browser.

Tuesday, security researchers Billy "BK" Rios of VeriSign Inc. and Nathan McFeters of Ernst & Young, posted proof-of-concept code that exploited another URL protocol-handling bug in the Firefox and Netscape browsers.

By Thursday morning, Firefox developers had wrapped up a fix for the newest vulnerability. An automatic update to users, however, has not yet been scheduled.

Like a bug that was patched in Firefox last week and a second that Mozilla acknowledgedMonday, this vulnerability is in Firefox's handing of URLs passed to it by other applications.

HEHE, Firefox isn't as secure as many people think, just wait when hackers find som o-day hack & exploits all firefox users (MOHAHA), luckily is use shitty IE :P
