BLACK HAT - Mozilla says it can patch flaws in 10 days

Filed under
Moz/FF

A Mozilla Corp. executive has vowed that his company can patch any critical vulnerability in its software within 10 days, a sign that Mozilla may intend to step up its efforts to improve security.

Mozilla executive Mike Shaver backed up his claim by scrawling it on a business card at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas last week and handing it to Robert Hansen, CEO of SecTheory.com, who also runs the ha.ckers.org Web site. Hansen posted a photo of Shaver's business card, including the claim "Ten [expletive] days."

"I told him I would post his card -- and he didn’t flinch. No, he wasn’t drunk. He’s serious," Hansen wrote in his blog.

I don’t know what the administrative staffs of our school are thinking about. Microsoft’s software is a very basic skill for enterprises to recruit people. This decision will make students lost their core competitiveness.” Read more
