Default Mozilla Firefox 1.0.7 DoS Exploit

Whitedust Security are reporting on a new exploit for Firefox which apparently affects all versions of the browser from 1.0.7 down. From the article: "If this exploit has made it out into, or indeed been retrieved from the wild is unknown at this time. However it is clear that this exploit will indeed need patching as soon as possible."

2nd that one. FireFox is facing the same problem IE does, popularity.

I still remember that post: More security flaws found in FF than in IE (in a week/month)

FF is less rewarding to screw with so much less users.
