It has the latest news on the FrontPage security problem, and explains what the "Netscape engineers are weenies!" comment is doing encoded backwards into a DLL that's installed by default with NT Server 4.0 and IIS.

Re:'"'Netscape engineers are weenies!' was a dumb thing to put in there," Cooper said. "But if we took a dictionary cracker and went over Sun's code, we would find the same sorts of things."'

Really? I wonder. While their not the only ones, Microsoft is infamous for putting useless junk in their code--get your hands on a resource extractor and see what you find in a supposedly tiny program like RegClean-- though it's usually not insulting. The PR boys at Sun can strut their egos like fools on occassion, but I've never heard of their programmers doing anything so childish.

So . . . when does the Microsoft Sucks! chrome get released?
