Patching FireFox to avoid the international web link exploit

Slashdot post: Patch & Workaround for Firefox Flaw Available. mcc writes “Yesterday Slashdot reported on a Firefox vulnerability which could allow remote code execution. Today Firefox has a patch and a configuration workaround, both of which immunize against the bug. If you are using Firefox you should immediately go to the URL ‘about:config:’, type ‘network.enableIDN’ into the box, and verify that ‘network.enableIDN’ is set to ‘false’.”
