Firefox ain't no paragon of perfection, neither, huh. And other stuffs.

Firefox gives passwords away

IE7 is also vulnerable, but to a much lesser extent...


"In the short term, Mozilla is suggesting avoiding using Password Manager and the Master Password Timeout Firefox extension.

However, an exploit, found in the wild, mimicked the
" login.myspace.com " site almost perfectly, causing
many users to believe they needed to log in.
"

...which says to me that it doesn't matter IF you disabled Firefox Password Manager or their Master extension ~ because if you're simply a MySpace user, you're screwed!

And, all this tells me that I'm not vulnerable because: Old Lady Eppylover still uses Win98 with IE6 (not 7), shielded by ZoneAlarm and bolstered by the occasional PestPatrol run.
I crash a lot, but usually come out okay in the long run. *crosses fingers, toes and eyes*
