    Surprised/Amazed

    Its " NOT"rated as critical , there's a test to see if affected . It's found in the newer releases . Ran the test but did not make sence to me to be honest . Mabye some one else could try and explain better ?

    Test : http://secunia.com/mozilla_products_...exposure_test/


    Ran the test again after ccleaner , less mumbo jumbo ! I'm not trying to play chicken little , but I like to know about this shit. When FF has a patch witch ,I'm sure is soon . I like to have an idea what I'm downloading. I'm home alone tonite so I'm bored .

    Type in your email passwords, go to a dodgy site, boom they have your passwords without you knowing.

    apparently a release candidate of 1.0.3, which fixes the bug, was made available on Saturday, that's two days before Secunia made the report

    People who otherwise did not know of this vulnerability could analyse the test script and use it to create their own hacking scripts.

    It's just downright irresponsible to release a test like that before a fix is available.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
