    java in browser threat

    First time poster. I like Linux Live. Is Ice Weasel vulnerable as the windows browsers? Should I be as wary while doing my online banking? I want to change all my passwords but would like to use Linux Live instead of windows. I'm hoping that my Linux Live may be immune to spyware. Am I being overly cautious? Thanks

    I'm certainly not an expert, but my understanding is that IceWeasel is a clone of FireFox (see discussions elsewhere) and I'm not aware of any special security over what FF contains. I run the noscript on both my knoppix and windows versions of FF.
