How's about something surrounding FF 3s release and plug in migration?

Dan Kaminsky isn't saying - yet:  http://www.doxpara.com/

El Reg thinks it's probably a variant of a known vulnerability:

though Dan Kaminsky and commentators suggest Dan's discovery is the ease

be forgiven for not having much source material!
