Description
A vulnerability has been reported in Mozilla Firefox, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error and can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in version 3.6. Other versions may also be affected.

Solution
Do not visit untrusted websites or follow untrusted links.

------------------------

Any word on this from Mozilla yet?

The "solution" listed hardly seems like a solution at all. Might at well use Internet ExPLODEr.

I uninstalled 3.6, and re-installed 3.5.8, which PSI lists as secure.

Nothing on Mozilla's security blog yet. It may still be unconfirmed.

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/02/18/firefox_ze...
"Mozilla issued a statement that read in part: "Mozilla takes all security vulnerabilities seriously, and have as yet been unable to confirm the claim of an exploit."
