I knew installing Firefox didn’t increase security ;)

All those people who installed Firefox and then dont use it at all have now opened themselves to a new vulnerability.

US-CERT is aware of a public exploit code for a new vulnerability targeting Microsoft Internet Explorer. The public exploit code demonstrates the vulnerability using the Mozilla Firefox firefoxurl:// URL protocol. To trigger this vulnerability, an attacker must persuade a user who has Firefox installed to access a specially crafted web page with Internet Explorer.
US-CERT will provide additional information as it becomes available.
