    This is part of the reason that I run my internet facing applications with Sandboxie.

    Thanks ronjor!

    New version of Firefox already out with the exploit patched up. I dont know about you but I am almost thinking that they are faster than Microsoft at fixing their stuff. :D

    I already installed latest version.
    That seems to be pretty quick.

    Hi, Just a side note. Do you think Geswall would be equally qualified to stop the mentioned attack as well as Sandboxie? I realize Geswall isn't a sandbox but they claim to be capable to stop everything your AV etc. misses. I have been checking Geswall out and am contemplating giving it a try. Thanks :)

    I would guess that any of the sandbox programs would work. If you still using OA or another HIPS, it should also alert to something trying to run.

    From the article:
    Also, if you look at the comments in ronjor's link, one of them states that NoScript should protect you. I have no idea if the default settings protect.

    OK thanks for the info. I guess I'm covered. :)

    Please forgive a possibly stupid question, but is the 3.1B3 also patched? I haven't noticed any update since I installed it.
    TIA
