Firefox Security Flaw

It ain't just Microsoft ...

Every geek's darling browser, Firefox, has been revealed as having a crucial unpatched flaw that will let remote sites execute malicious code on your workstation. The advisory was posted to a security list late last night, and contains a link that you can use to check your own version for potential danger. A somewhat more human-friendly treatment of the issue can be read here. As always, this only affects you if you are a Windoze user, and anyone using a real OS is immune.

Microsoft isn't the only company that can screw up on the security front. They just do it more often than most.
