    FireFox 3.5 0-Day

    So we have a zero-day for FireFox 3.5

    Yes, it is our beloved JavaScript................the alternative to OpenX, with my personal rider that at least "OpenX" tells you what it is likely to do, rather than masquerade as some soon to be defunct chain of coffee shops?

    Article is here:

    And as for any pedants who question "zero-day"............to the cognoscenti, that is "today" so any vulnerability that hasn't been fixed right now is "zero-day".................any other notational concept is as moronic as it is irrelevant

    I wonder if this has been fixed in 3.5.1, released today..

    EDIT: Slashdot says it has been fixed, assuming they're referring to the same exploit

    "A day after Slashdot reports about a self-inflicted vulnerability in Firefox 3.5, Mozilla releases 3.5.1. It addresses that security issue, but also fixes the annoying slow-startup on Windows. Bummer the UNIX wars have subsided, because apparently they also had to fix a problem where Firefox on a Sparc platform would crash when visiting www.hp.com!"
