'Hackers' claim Firefox is fundamentally flawed
ZDNet asked Mozilla security chief Window Snyder about the flaw uncovered by the hackers at the conference, and she said it appeared legit. She added that the flaw could be a variation on an old attack, and that Mozilla would investigate the matter. Mozilla security staffer Jesse Ruderman also attempted to convince the hackers to reveal the bugs via Mozilla's bug bounty program, which awards $500 for every security flaw found, but the hackers reportedly laughed off the offer. They claimed their withholding of the information is "for the greater good of the Internet," and that they are "setting up communication networks for black hats [malicious hackers]."
