Mozilla disables Microsoft plug-ins?, (Sat, Oct 17th)

A couple of readers have indicated that this evening when they started Firefox it disabled the Microsoft plug-ins Windows Presentation Foundation and Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant 1.1. These plug-ins have been the source of some controversy since it was revealed earlier this week that Microsoft had patched them as part of patch Tuesday.

While the people over at Mozilla have recommended disabling these plug-ins, their is no indication over at the Mozilla Blogs of why this action was taken.

Anybody have any details of what is going on?
