Zeus virus affecting Firefox

I've heard over the news that there's an updated version of the Zeus virus that steals banking login information when you go to check your bank account online on Firefox.

Although I want to express complete confidence in Mac for it's seemingly invincibility to most, if not all, viruses, this has me concerned since I use Firefox as my main web browser.

So my main question is: is Firefox for Mac vulnerable? or have we managed to save ourselves due to our excellent tastes in a superior quality product once again?

Cheers!!





P.S. Spock is coming to Calgary!! So is Lando Calrissian and Data!!

The Zeus botnet only targets Windows machines, and computers running Windows XP Professional SP2 make up the majority of the botnet. Netwitness did not report on infections among Windows 7 machines. Kneber is primarily found on machines in corporate and government infrastructures, but home users can be affected as well.
From the Wikipedia link - in case anyone was worried about this...
