Jon Lasser on the Mozilla Security Bugs Policy

The column discusses the accusations that mozilla.org is covering up security holes and questions whether every bug actually needs wide publicity. As always, mozilla.org's security bugs policy is available online.

Recently, a security bug (September 16, 2002) was found in Mozilla, and it was fixed two days later. Would that kind of thing happen with a bug in Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Windows Media Player, or anything else Microsoft puts out? I seriously doubt it. The only time we here Microsoft talk about fixing bugs is when some puke hacker takes advantage of one of them to wreak havoc. Mozilla.org hiding bugs? Impossible. How could they? Open source prevents it from happening.
