QuickTime security issue fixed with Firefox 2.0.0.7 new security release

[Solved] QuickTime security issue resolved with Firefox 2.0.0.7

Firefox 2.0.0.7 has released a new security release again. As addicted users of FF, we are really happy how Firefox progresses. When ever some issues are fixed, they provide us with a new release. Also user does not need to think twice in installing the new release as it does not add more issues to your existing installation. When Internet Explorer (IE) 7 came out users had issues; also still we have so many issues with IE7, but not with Firefox.

With this release they fixed the bug related to QuickTime; "Code execution via QuickTime Media-link files".
QuickTime Media-Link files contain a qtnext attribute that could be used on Windows systems to launch the default browser with arbitrary command-line options. When the default browser is Firefox 2.0.0.6 or earlier use of the -chrome option allowed a remote attacker to run script commands with the full privileges of the user. This could be used to install malware, steal local data, or otherwise corrupt the victim's computer. Read more

We really appreciate quick response to security issues like that.
