It was Today when ilug-admin at linux.ie shared his opinions on [ILUG] Mozilla...

it's pretty common practice, only developers will be able to fix these
bugs -- so only developers need know. Why do you need to know ? Since at
the same time they will be informing every script kiddie out there. I'm
pretty satisfied with the way they're handling this -- shows they have
some kind of clue when it comes to security. If you've ever taken a look
at rootshell.com or securityfocus.com you'll see that the hole is usually
passed to the vendor first and they're given a grace period. If they take
no action, it's their fault *then*.

it would only be M$-like if they published the bugs and took no action,
(used to) happen quite a bit with IIS holes.
