New Communicator bug found

A bug was found late last week in Netscape's Communicator 4.01a, a release that itself was designed to fix a different bug. According to the company, Netscape was notified of the bug Thursday by someone from Singapore's Information Technology Institute. Like the previous Communicator bug, this one allows a malicious Web site operator to use JavaScript to compromise the security of the user's browser.

Netscape says that a patch will be available within three weeks
