I don't really think it's about teaching a lesson. If you don't like the way he handles things, you could set up a filter to ignore his e-mails. This way, you won't have to whine each and every time he sends security related material.

Hi all,

Another flaw in IE:


Yet another? No. You can't be serious.


<HTML>
<SCRIPT> a = new Array(); while (1) { (a = new Array(a)).sort(); } </SCRIPT> <SCRIPT> a = new Array(); while (1) { (a = new Array(a)).sort(); } </SCRIPT>
</HTML>

Normally I would see if it's exploitable but I figure I'm not MS's pet bug finder/analyser... So, I've CC'ed this message to Microsoft. I'm sure they know their own product better then I do and can analyse the problem much faster. So if you want to know the impact of this vulnerability, ask them: I'm sure they will be more then willing to help you. I'm sure they will even reply to this message with technical details and a patch tomorrow.


Ahh, don't you mean normally you'd get paid for it but somebody decided you are too much of a "risk" to work with? Just guessing here. Or maybe you release this just to show us you have nothing against Mozilla?

As to "and a patch tomorrow." - who are you kidding? Ever heard if Thor Larholm and his mailing list, Unpatched? If we are lucky, they will patch it secretly in a couple of releases. If not, wait 6 months.

As it is IE.. well now, don't say they "violated" GPL when they use your stuff again for some virus.

PS. Don't think firefox will keep you save from hackers, I _know_ it won't ;) But more on that later...


There is more to come? I guess you've been saving up. Is this all about teaching us all a lesson?

I appreciate your work, and I appreciate your wishes. I really don't appreciate you or how you do things.

It's a shame really.

    Gadi.
