According to this article it was a hoax... So who is telling the truth,
and what sort of fall out will come from this?

An attacker could commandeer a computer running the browser simply by crafting a Web page that contains some 
malicious JavaScript code, Mischa Spiegelmock and Andrew Wbeelsoi said in a presentation at the ToorCon hacker 
conference here. The flaw affects Firefox on Windows, Apple Computer's Mac OS X and Linux, they said.

The hackers claim they know of about 30 unpatched Firefox flaws. They don't plan to disclose them, instead holding on 
to the bugs.

"I do hope you guys change your minds and decide to report the holes to us and take away $500 per vulnerability 
instead of using them for botnets," Ruderman said.
