An unpatched memory corruption flaw in the latest version of Firefox creates a means for hackers to drop malware onto vulnerable systems.
Older versions of the popular alternative browser might also be affected, Secunia warns.
Exploit code has been uploaded onto recently revived security exploit website milw0rm, a factor that could hasten the development of more attack code.
Secunia advises Firefox users to avoid browsing untrusted websites or following untrusted links pending the availability of a fix from Mozilla (there's nothing in the pipeline just yet).
