InformationWeek > Security > 'Extremely Critical' Bugs Found In Firefox > May 9, 2005: "
A pair of unpatched vulnerabilities in Mozilla's Firefox Web browser -- rated as 'extremely critical' by one security firm -- could allow an attacker to take control of a PC simply by getting a user to visit a malicious Web site, Mozilla said Sunday.
Because proof-of-concept code has been leaked -- as were the vulnerabilities -- before a patch was ready, Mozilla recommended that Firefox users either disable JavaScript or lock down the browser so it doesn't install additional software, such as extensions' or themes, from Web sites. "
