Here is (One of, not the one with the code ITSELF,) the quote that a few people asked me for earlyer...
Told ya the old Mozilla DID have flaws [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] (Yes, I DID mix Gozilla up with Mozilla, but I DID remember using the old browser (But again, mixed it up with Gozilla) and having problems... and someone questioned me about it in the topic... So here ya go [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Posted this to clear up some earlier confusion

There is a flaw in the new versions of Mozilla (and derivatives). No way to tell if that's what you're talking about since you posted a link to a site that requires subsriptions. There is already a patch out to fix this problem. If you'd like to read interesting articles about browser security, how about this one:
"The U.S. government's Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) is warning Web surfers to stop using Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) browser."
Doh... Well not in a post, but I did to someone in a PM [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]
Ok I'm lost now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
I'll take a look at that warning about IE site... But I didn't say anything about it not having flaws or spyware...
Why are you attacking Mozilla all the time? The makers deserve support! In IE most vulnerabilities are well known until they get patched months later. There are still several known security holes in IE every hacker could use to run code on your machine. If the Mozilla Foundation gets to know a bug in their code they fix it at once and warn everyone. And thats the difference which really counts. Microsoft uses the old "security through obscurity" method which cannot work if there are people outside in the web who know the attack points.
Because of that the CERTs of the USA, most European countries and more countries througout the world say that it is a good idea to leave IE behind and change to Mozilla or Opera.
BTW: No software product in that complexity can be flawless! Some are coded in a safer way, some have bigger holes (IE). But the important thing is the way to deal with those security risks.
P.S. Opera is not open source but very good, too. Mozilla is a bit more secure because everyone can check the sources.
I do not feel like arguing right now, i am just posting somethign SOMEONE ASKED ME FOR. right now, i could blow through the roof on other... matters... so ill dismiss this, for now.
