ZIPLOCK has discovered a weakness in Mozilla Firefox, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
Successful exploitation causes the browser to consume a large amount of CPU and memory resources on a vulnerable system when the affected browser is started up again after an attack. Users may have to remove the "history.dat" file in order to be able to use the affected browser.
The weakness has been confirmed in version 1.5. Other versions may also be affected.
