Vulnerability in FF!
« on: February 22, 2007, 10:38:59 PM »
Hi malware fighters,

There is a hole in Firefox through which an attacker can steal login data, and poison cookies: http://www.milw0rm.com/exploits/3340
The bug was found up by Michal Zalewski, the polish researcher who has found more serious flaws in FF lately.

You are safe using NoScript.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

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