That did not last long


It had
been only on the streets for five minutes, but the 'more secure' open source browser, Firefox, has already found to have a zero day flaw.

According to the Security outfit, Digital Vaccine Laboratories, it is the first critical hole found in the browser. To be fair, it is also found in Firefox 2.0.x.  It has been reported as a vulnerability to the Mozilla security team who are probably still suffering from the launch party hang-over.

It also requires user interaction to exploit it, such as clicking on a link in e-mail or visiting a malicious Web page. So far, DV labs are not giving any details of the flaw until the Mozilla team takes its antacid tablets, aspirins, and comes up with a fix.
