Another denial-of-service bug found in Firefox 2

Recommended Posts

A second security flaw that could cause the new Firefox 2 browser to crash has been publicly disclosed.

The vulnerability lies in the way the open-source browser handles JavaScript code. Viewing a rigged Web page will cause the browser to exit, a representative for Mozilla, the publisher of the software, said Wednesday. Contrary to claims on security mailing lists, the bug cannot be exploited to run arbitrary code on a PC running Firefox 2, the representative said.

I'd use Opera, but it is severely lacking in competent extensions/widgets that I frequently use in Firefox.
Yup :love:
