The start page is looking pretty cool. Make sure that you hover above the 'Parties' link on the main page. :-)


#119 Security bug warning - wrong detection?

I use Debian woody on one of my servers. It is loaded with Mozilla 0.9.9 patched by the Debian team. 0.9.9 has several flaws but I am not sure that Debian will upload the latest upstream version to fix them. They may just patch their own version.

What I mean is that a build tagged 0.9.9 can be patched against the security problems if it is not coming directly from mozilla.

So perhaps the comment about the security problems is not applicable to all browsers whose Build ID is lower than a certain day. The sentence should perhaps be changed from

"Warning! Your copy of Mozilla is vulnerable to a security bug. You should fix this problem by downloading and installing the latest Mozilla build, Mozilla 1.0 Release Candidate 3."

to

"Warning! Your copy of Mozilla is probably/may be vulnerable to a security bug. ????"
