Firefox and Chrome Clickjacked

IE 8 has a cool new feature that prevents clickjacking -- those attacks where surfers are lured, like in a phishing attack, to a malicious Web site. Once there, the user's browser is taken over by the hacker, who can install malware, steal passwords or maybe just visit a few unseemly sites!

Chrome and Firefox wish they had this feature, as their browsers are vulnerable to these attacks. Google is working on a fix, but I'm sure it was mighty busy over the weekend -- especially after it declared that the entire Internet, even Google itself, was malware.
