MozillaZine reports that a recently developed Firefox
IDN link buffer overflow vulnerability exploit
has been developed
"The PwnZilla 5 code takes advantage of the international domain name (IDN) link buffer overflow flaw, details of which were published earlier this month. The weblog post says that the exploit code "could let attackers take complete control over computers cruising the Web with unpatched versions of the Firefox Internet browser". Previous public exploits for the vulnerability have been basic proof-of-concepts that simply crash the browser.
