LXer: ToorCon ("Firefox security is a mess") sponsored by Microsoft

Published at LXer:

Lately, I read the headline: "Open Source browser Firefox is so critically flawed that it is impossible to fix, according to two hackers." Further on, in the ZDNet article I read: "The hackers claim they know of about 30 unpatched Firefox flaws. They don't plan to disclose them, instead holding onto the bugs." Since that sounds suspicious, I decided to start searching for connections with MS. Easy enough, here it is: 21:30-03:00 ToorCon Saturday Night Party - Sponsored by Microsoft (Link) Hackers drinking MS-beer for more than five consecutive hours! Judge for yourself...

It's a bit hard to keep code issues secret in an Open Source project.

Look at what happened with SCO. That whole thing seems to have just petered out.
