Windows Flaw

This is a Windows flaw that just happens to be exploitable via Mozilla.

Anything sent to Mozilla using the shell: protocol is just handed off to the operating system to deal with, which is coincidently why this flaw only affects Win2K/XP users. Mac and Linux/*nix users aren't affected. The problem in Windows will be fixed with SP5/SP2 (respectively) as well.

Tecbnically, this isn't a Mozilla problem at all, but they issued a "patch" anyway instead of just leaving people out in the cold until SP2 for XP arrives and SP5 for 2K.

Besides, exactly how many UNPATCHED flaws are there still in IE? Somewhere around a half dozen KNOWN remote exploits of the browser, and who knows how many more unknown ones there are.
