Possible Vulnerability in Firefox Reported at Toorcon is a Joke

Apparently i’m not the only one who likes joking around with firefox. Mischa Spiegelmock, one of the Torcoon speaker had just clarified that he was joking about Firefox’s vulnerability in his speech.

The main purpose of our talk was to be humorous.

As part of our talk we mentioned that there was a previously known Firefox vulnerability that could result in a stack overflow ending up in remote code execution. However, the code we presented did not in fact do this, and I personally have not gotten it to result in code execution, nor do I know of anyone who has.

I have not succeeded in making this code do anything more than cause a crash and eat up system resources, and I certainly haven’t used it to take over anyone else’s computer and execute arbitrary code.

I do not have 30 undisclosed Firefox vulnerabilities, nor did I ever make this claim. I have no undisclosed Firefox vulnerabilities. The person who was speaking with me made this claim, and I honestly have no idea if he has them or not.

I apologize to everyone involved, and I hope I have made everything as clear as possible.

Well, i think he made Firefox developer teams nuts chasing the imaginary bugs. That’s the good thing, it shows us that Firefox wouldn’t let any bugger boys strike their asses.

Go go firefox.
