Graphics Engine threat

A recently added Graphics Engine, WebGL, in Firefox 4 and Chrome 9 are vulnerable to exploit.
The article provisions solutions to disabling this component in both browsers. I will quickly summarise how to disable WebGL in Firefox 4.
  1. Type in "about:config" in the address bar.
  2. Search for "webgl".
  3. Set value for "webgl.disabled" to "true".
  4. Restart Firefox.
Simple steps that will give you peace of mind.
