False alarm!

Summary: Update 05/20/08: Sorry ladies and gents, I have to retract my previous entry.  I had mentioned that 24 flaws were patched for Mozilla today, but what I didn't realize was that the announcement was specific to gentoo emerge packages and that this was actually fixed sometime ago.

Mozilla Firefox LogoUpdate 05/20/08: Sorry ladies and gents, I have to retract my previous entry.  I had mentioned that 24 flaws were patched for Mozilla today, but what I didn't realize was that the announcement was specific to gentoo emerge packages and that this was actually fixed sometime ago.

Guess I was just too excited by the thought that 24 flaws were getting fixed by Mozilla in one day.  Should've known better, Window would never let her guys slip that badly!

Sorry for the error!

  • These are old patches

    Nate, these vulnerabilities are all fixed with FF 2.0.14, released a month ago (April 16).

    • Just realized...

      Apparently the full disclosure post was for an update for gentoo.

      Should we retract the story?

        • Hahaha

          No, I think if Window was going to take me out, she'd have done it back when Rios and I were hurting them pretty good with the protocol handler abuse. :)
