Netscape advised users to set the size of their browser cache--where copies of recently accessed Web files are stored to minimize time spent accessing the network--to zero to plug the hole temporarily, pending a fix.
Users today can get Navigator 4.07 via Netscape's FTP site.
Tomorrow Netscape will make the update available from the download page on Netcenter, the company's portal site, according to Micki Seibel, senior product manager for Communicator. Communicator is Netscape's Internet software suite of which Navigator is the Web browsing component.
As of today, Netscape had not heard of any instances of anyone having their browser cache compromised, Seibel said.
