LXer: Mozilla confirms critical vulnerability in Firefox 3.5

Published at LXer:

Mozilla has acknowledged that there is a critical JavaScript vulnerability in its Firefox 3.5 web browser and has confirmed that it's currently working on an update to address the problem. As a workaround, Mozilla advises users to disable the Just-in-time (JIT) JavaScript compiler. To do so, users must first enter about:config into the browsers location bar and then set the javascript.options.jit.content setting value to "false". When making changes to the about:config settings, users will first see a warning message stating that "This might void your warranty" and that changes to the advanced settings can be harmful to the stability, security and performance of Firefox. To continue users must click a button marked "I'll be careful I promise!".
