A fix is on the way already, and Mozilla has added, "users who have not added sites to their "software whitelists" should not be at risk".

I still feel more secure with Firefox than IE...given their history of correcting flaws much quicker than Microsoft.

Oh noes!!! Um...oh wait, it's software so it can indeed be hacked. BUT, the latest update (mozilla.org) is available for download.

I just hope everyone practices safe computing :)
