I'm reading here: http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,2156543,00.asp about a new security breach in Firefox. Anybody who can clearify if this is a windows only breach, or if this is cross platform? I ran glsa-check --list and could not find anything related..

Thanks to anybody who can put my mind at ease.

There's a thread about it in OTW. It's actually a bug in IE (or possibly Windows itself), not Firefox. While it's not impossible that a Linux application could have a similar bug, I'm not aware of any with the problem (and Unix-like systems make it slightly harder to make this mistake than Windows does).
