Mozilla reacts to security leak claim

Posted on Friday, September 23 2005 @ 03:17:18 CEST by


Symantec reported a few days ago that more serious vulnerabilities and exploits were found in Mozilla's Firefox browser than in Microsoft's Internet Explorer over the first six months of 2005 and today Mozilla's European president decided to react to this accusation.
Tristan Nitot, president of Mozilla Europe, hit back by claiming on Monday that when a vulnerability is found Mozilla's "ability to react, find a solution and put it into the user's hands is better than Microsoft."

Nitot said that Mozilla's reaction time was faster than Microsoft's. "If you look at our ability to respond, we are in much better shape. On 6 September an IDN buffer issue was reported to Mozilla. On 8 September it was publicly disclosed. We ask our developers not to mention any problems until we have a fix for them, but for some reason he went public. On 9 September we had a configuration change that disabled the IDN problem, that users could implement manually, or they could use a patch. Within ten days we had a newer version that was fixed completely."
