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 :)

Call your cable company and ask if they recommend someone in a "Pay for support" model. If you are in luck, not only will they recommend someone who knows how to work with their setup, but you may get a promo rate from the referral.
