Simple DoS for Firefox 1.5
Posted by: Peter Laborge
Published: 2005-12-07

An exploit for the new Firefox 1.5 browser was released today that causes a denial of service condition using a simple web page as a trigger.

More Details at SecurityFocus.com

(Firefox 1.5 users should get in the habit of clearing the cache folder often.)
The only easy day was yesterday.

I cannot believe that a responsible website would publish the code for this exploit which is what happens if you follow the links from this topic to Security Focus and beyond. (No criticism of BC intended I hasten to add)
