Re: Firefox 0.92 DoS via TinyBMP

Running Windows XP SP1 fully patched. Mozilla Firefox 0.9.2 opened the page
immediately and spiked my memory over 900MB. My computer was still usable
and I was able to easily shut down Firefox. When opening the same link with
IE 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030618-0119 it took about 10 minutes to load the
page, spiked my memory above 900mb while making my computer unusable until I
was able to shut IE down (which took about 30 seconds). I run an AMD Athlon
1.33Ghz 512RAM.

 

I believe the problem is not the browser. I will try the same link on other
browsers shortly. Might be the OS or just these two browsers.
