No More Than 10 Days To Release Critical Patch

By | August 8, 2007 | 2 Comments


“Ten Fuc*ing Days”. That’s what Mozilla said.

That’s right, they’ve said that they can release any critical patch within 10 days or faster. Firefox 2.0.0.6 was released even faster than 10 days (after security flaws were discovered). So they are not just using some tricks (or do they?), it’s already proven, we will see how fast they will release next one.

In my point of view, before using such statements they should also fix other security vulnerabilities. Even if they are not the most critical ones.

    You’re right. Ten days is pretty fast for security fixes, but like you said..they need to prove this with the current outstanding vulnerabilities. Otherwise their claim means nothing.
