Mozilla denies new Firefox bug is security risk
Mozilla is denying
that a bug that crashes Firefox 3.5 is a security vulnerability,
countering earlier reports that the company's latest browser contained
a flaw even though it had just been patched.
In a Sunday post to Mozilla's security blog,
Mike Shaver, the company's vice president of engineering, said that the
bug, which had originally been disclosed on the milw0rm hacker site, is
not a vulnerability. "The reports by press and various security
agencies have incorrectly indicated that this is an exploitable bug,"
Shaver said. "Our analysis indicates that it is not, and we have seen
no example of exploitability."
