Patch for FF's ISDN flaw
« on: August 08, 2006, 08:36:43 AM »
Hi malware fighters,

There is a patch for the ISDN flaw in Firefox, which in the newer versions is disabled
in config by default, because of phishing risks, download the patch here: and install opening with firefox.exe,

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

It is not only a very old patch that has been implemented in newer versions of FF, but it is also not a patch for ISDN but for IDN :-)
