Vulnerable: Firefox 184.108.40.206 and probably versions below
Impact: DoS (perhaps Code Execution)
As Firefox 2.0 was released a few days ago...
A "new" Exploit for the old version!
The great Firefox! ;D
On Kubuntu Linux the exploits does not just kill firefox
but freezes the whole system! Probably it will also freeze
If the URL is bigger than 4092 bytes, Firefox crashes!
The URL in the following code is 4093 bytes!

Could not replicate this on Firefox 220.127.116.11 on Ubuntu 6.06. Tried
with 8k of 'a''s even and no luck:
perl -e "print '<html><body><a href=\"http://' . 'a'x8192 .
'.de\">DoS</a></body></html>'" > test.html
If I click on the link and go up to my address bar, I can see that it
even manages to pass along the entire thing up to the '.de'.
