Firefox, the world’s most popular browser after Internet Explorer, have two ”extremely critical” security breaches according to the security company Secunia. These two breaches can be used to run malicious software on your computer. Through a bug in how JavaScript URLs is treated just by clicking on a link the security breach can automitcally install and activate software on your computer. The security hole is in Firefox 1.0.3 and earlier versions, so far there is no fix for this but by shutting down JavaScript and software installations you can avoid this until an update arrives.
