Hackers Say Firefox JavaScript Flaw Unpatchable

The two hackers who found a new Firefox flaw say the bug is impossible to patch.

A presentation at the ToorCon hacker conference revealed details of the JavaScript vulnerability, which can be used to create overflow errors and apparently resides in code at the heart of Firefox that’s a decade or so old.

Mozilla’s security chief responded somewhat noncommittally, saying that further investigation would of course be necessary.....
