    I don't know what this exploit is supposed to do (I assume crash the browser), but my FF just fires up my CPU and... that's it :) I can close the tab or click the Home button and everything goes back to normal.

    I have FF 2.0.3 (32bit) running on a 64bit Gentoo. -- Mihai _______________________________________________ Full-Disclosure - We believe in it. Charter: http://lists.grok.org.uk/full-disclosure-charter.html Hosted and sponsored by Secunia - http://secunia.com/
