Article: Hackers claim zero-day flaw in Firefox

CNET News.com reports: "The open-source Firefox Web browser is critically flawed in the way it handles JavaScript, ... An attacker could commandeer a computer running the browser simply by crafting a Web page that contains some malicious JavaScript code, Mischa Spiegelmock and Andrew Wbeelsoi said in a presentation at the ToorCon hacker conference here. The flaw affects Firefox on Windows, Apple Computer's Mac OS X and Linux, they said."

It just goes to show that no browser is completely safe from programming flaws, even our beloved Firefox...
