Attack code published for Firefox flaw


A hacker Tuesday published code that exploits a vulnerability found in the latest version of the Mozilla's Firefox browser. The code, which targets the Firefox 1.5 browser, was posted Tuesday on The Metasploit Project site at http://metasploit.com/archive/framework/msg00857.html by a hacker known as H D Moore. Metasploit is a widely used hacking tool.

Moore said that a hacker by the name of Georgi Guninski reported the flaw to the Mozilla Foundation on Dec. 6 of last year, and that he had simply implemented and posted the technique described by Guninski. Computerworld | Attack code published for Firefox flaw
