Mozilla Issues Firefox Workaround


Mozilla has responded to a serious hole in it's Firefox browser and has issued a temporary work-around.

This temporary fix protects users from an attack of a flaw that can allow malicious code to be run on a victims computer.

Mike Schroepfer, the director of engineering at Mozilla said that the problem resulted from the manner in which Mozilla deals with International Domain Names (IDN's).

A domain name is something like: www.pepsi.com. An international domain name is one which contains characters of a foreign language.

You can download the fix from Mozilla's website.
