Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla SeaMonkey, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

No... It's not going to ever end... at least not in our live time.

The best defense is to constantly be updated on your virus scan, firewalls and your HOST files. Those will give you a bit more security than traditional methods.

It's a war going on, and I see how computers are being attacked.

Everyones next ULTIMATE step is to have an extra hard drive that has the same capacity of the OS that they're running. And if something goes wrong, plug the bad one up as a SLAVE, run scans all day long on it,,, and even after they come out negative, transfer that data off of that drive,,,,, repartition and reformat that infected drive, then transfer the data back to it. Manually. It's getting rough, and if you're not prepared to handle it, then all I can say is "Oh Well"

Yep, better yet would be Firefox2.0 I suspect
