At the same time, additional flaws were published about IE and Explorer. Let's see whether MS or Mozilla patches their problems first.

Mozilla is preparing a new release to patch these vulnerabilities, and already has release candidates:

Firefox to issue patch as soon as this weekend! I guess we know who takes security seriously, and it isn't MS! Watch for the new FF release, 1.0.3.
