    Security Advisory - JavaScript flaw (FF & Moz)

    There isn't an update yet, so if you use Firefox to visit untrustworthy web sites, you are advised to turn off JavaScript until you reach a site where you really want to allow it. See: MFSA 2005-42: Code execution via java script: IconURL.

    There also is a discussion in the advisory of a software installation problem. It is easy and hardly ever a problem to completely disable automatic software installs until you really want to update either Firefox or one of your extensions. (Tools>Options..., Web features pane, "Allow web sites to install software")

    An update is on the way to fix the problem - Firefox 1.0.4 candidate builds are available for testing.
