The latest revision to Firefox 2 has been released (2.0.0.5).  It fixes a handful of random announces but also does have a security update or two in there (one is a remote code execution).  Firefox uses should upgrade when convenient.  As a reminder, Firefox 1.5 is no longer supported (since May).  If you haven't upgraded to Firefox 2, you should think about it.

Tragedy phishing scam

As many of you may be aware, yesterday happened a huge tragedy in Brazil, with an Airplane crash, that probably killed more than 200 persons. (Full story here)

As always, the miscreants will start to make their rounds, so we expect for the next hours, phishing scams with links to 'videos and photos' of the accident, which will lead to malicious software/webpages. So our advice is to pay attention and avoid this kind of emails.
