Firefox 'firedrill' critical fix coming next week

Attack code targets browser vulnerability

Robert McMillan

Online attack code has been released targeting a critical, unpatched flaw in Mozilla's Firefox browser.

The attack code, written by security researcher Guido Landi, was published on several security sites on Wednesday, sending Firefox developers scrambling to patch the issue. Until the flaw is patched, this code could be modified by attackers and used to sneak unauthorised software onto a Firefox user's machine.

Well I wonder what will happen to me...

I just remembered that I am using the FF 3.1 beta 3.

Wonder if I will have to wait and get patched after they release another beta update...
