    The article points out they have already been fixed if you are using the
    latest (2.0.0.1) version.

    Actually it says the phishing flaw doesn't appear to affect the latest version. The access to local files flaw
    appears to still be an issue.

    ....give the attacker local file read privileges. It appears that this flaw
    may only apply to older versions of Firefox, prior to the current 2.0
    release.
