I really wonder why the Mozilla Foundation decided to release a serious
security update on a friday night and to disclose the link to my
proof-of-concept code so quickly. It wasn't intendet from my side to release
this as a 0day exploit. Please complain to securitymozilla.org if you
disagree with their release policy.
The link tag allows to load a custom image as the icon for a website,
displayed in the location bar and in the tab title.

NTBugtraq Editor's Note:
Most viruses these days use spoofed email addresses. As such, using an Anti-Virus product which automatically notifies the perceived sender of a message it believes is infected may well cause more harm than good. Someone who did not actually send you a virus may receive the notification and scramble their support staff to find an infection which never existed in the first place. Suggest such notifications be disabled by whomever is responsible for your AV, or at least that the idea is considered.
