Firefox Vulnerabilities FAKED

Nice to see that a group of idiots can turn a conference into a joke
just as easily as they can a mailing list.  Was there any technical
verification from the Toorcon guys before they accepted these asshats
talk?

The main purpose of our talk was to be humorous.



As part of our talk we mentioned that there was a previously known
Firefox vulnerability that could result in a stack overflow ending up
in remote code execution. However, the code we presented did not in
fact do this, and I personally have not gotten it to result in code
execution, nor do I know of anyone who has.



I have not succeeded in making this code do anything more than cause a
crash and eat up system resources, and I certainly haven't used it to
take over anyone else's computer and execute arbitrary code.



I do not have 30 undisclosed Firefox vulnerabilities, nor did I ever
make this claim. I have no undisclosed Firefox vulnerabilities. The
person who was speaking with me made this claim, and I honestly have
no idea if he has them or not.

I apologize to everyone involved, and I hope I have made everything as
clear as possible.

Sincerely,

Mischa Spiegelmock
