Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape Critical Vulnerability

“The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the handling of an URL that contains the 0xAD character in its domain name. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

Successful exploitation crashes Firefox [and these other browsers] and may potentially allow code execution but requires that the user is tricked into visiting a malicious web site or open a specially crafted HTML file.”

So don't browse untrusted websites until they release a fix.
Check these URLs f u think you are affected:-
