Default Unpatched Firefox flaw may expose users

A new, unpatched flaw in that affects all versions of Firefox could let attackers surreptitiously run malicious code on users' PCs, a security researcher has warned.

The problem lies in the way Firefox handles Web links that are overly long and contain dashes, security researcher Tom Ferris said in an interview via instant messaging late Thursday.

He posted an advisory and a proof of concept to the Full Disclosure security mailing list and to his Security Protocols Web site.
