Netscape Engineers != Weenies

Friday April 14th, 2000

Contrary to the opinion of MS employees, Netscape engineers are in fact not weenies. Read more in this PCWeek article. 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.

You got to be kidding, comparing about:mozilla with a password that gives access to a webserver. Putting your own personal backdoor in an application should be kept in movies from the eighties.

The programmer who did this should be fired immediately. That the password was something disgraceful about Netscape engineers is irrelevant.

Again, Microsoft has made a blunder. Look how their stock is falling.
