Firefox 1.0.3 Vulnerability

Recommended Posts

Just read this at eWeek.com.


Firefox users are urged to disable JavaScript immediately as a temporary workaround. Additionally, Mozilla recommends that the browser's software installation feature be disabled. This can be done by unchecking the "Allow web sites to install software" box, which can be found by selecting Options on the Tools menu and then Web Features.


As a rule I don't panic when I hear "vulnerability", but coming from eWeek concerning Firefox, one never knows, does one?

Is it sufficient to only uncheck the "allow web sites to install software" button, or do I really need to disable Java Script when I surf the web? My work uses Java Script all over in our products, so I have no choice but to leve JS on when I'm using a work application.
