Now we're blaming Microsoft for Mozilla Firefox vulnerabilities!

This is too good to pass up!

Robert Lemos from penned this priceless paragraph in today's edtion1:

Much of what we learned security-wise from Internet Explorer is being applied to Firefox to find vulnerabilities... For example, Internet Explorer had its own Javascript flaw that allowed one page to execute scripts by navigating to another page that had higher privileges. That is one of the vulnerabilities used in this exploit.

There you have it! Respected security columnists point the finger at Microsoft for problems not caused by Microsoft!

Of course there's a very easy way to avoid problems caused by Firefox vulnerabilities! Run Firefox as a limited user on Windows XP or Windows 2000. If the user can't break the computer, an exploited application can't either.
