Firefox 0day was found on the Novel Peace Prize website

A hidden iframe on nobelpeaceprize.org was exploiting a Firefox 0day vulnerability via an exploit-pack.

According to Einar Oftedal, a detection executive at Norman ASA in Oslo, the official website for the Nobel Peace prize, nobelpeaceprize.org, was compromised so that it contained an iframe link to a malicious server.
“This iframe has a multi exploit backend and serves exploits for Firefox, including a working remote exploit for firefox 3.6.11,” he said in an instant message to The Register. “We didn't see any 0day for IE,” he added, referring to Microsoft's browser.
