The UK security research company, Secunia said that it has found a critical security flaw in Firefox web-browser that could put users at risk of information disclosure attacks

The flaw could be exploited to access potentially sensitive information and is caused by an error in the JavaScript engine. The vulnerability exists in all versions of Mozilla, Firefox and Netscape.

Secunia has released an online test to allow users to determine if they are affected by the vulnerability. Fixes are expected this week.
