    Firefox Browser Flaw

    Hey, I'm not sure if anyone uses this browser (I use it, and it's really good, if you want to d/l it the address is www.mozilla.org ) but there was a security flaw found in it. They're releasing a patch soon, and they said you can prevent anyone from doing damage if you have javascript turned off. Just thought I'd throw the alert out there.

    there are actually several, proving once again that throwing stones at the big guys only works if you live in a brick house. Firefox, unfortunately, does not. There will be more less-publicized flaws just as there are in Linux, etc.

    That said, Firefox is a good browser, no doubt. Just not the answer to your security dreams.
