Default Two serious security holes found in Firefox

DANISH PROBLEM watcher Secunia said that two "extremely critical" security problems have been discovered in ever-more popular browser, Firefox.
According to Secunia, these involve cross scripting attacks involving IFRAME Javascript URLs and input passed to the IconURL parameter.

The holes have been confirmed in version 1.0.3, and exploit code is publicly available, said Secunia, in its note, here.
