    Security researchers claim to have found ways to exploit a serious bug in Firefox and Mozilla Web browsers, a sign that attacks could be on the way. ... Disclosure of a flaw typically starts a race in the security community to exploit it. In the past few days, at least two security researchers have posted messages to popular security mailing lists claiming they have found ways attackers could take advantage of the vulnerability.

    The postings said that exploits that work on Windows and Linux operating systems had been found. At the time the flaw details were disclosed, there were no known exploits for the vulnerability, beyond the one Ferris claimed to have for Windows.
