Mike Shaver Get Screwed by Mozilla

A few days ago I wrote about Mike Shaver's claim that a security hole in Firefox would be fixed within ten "fucking" days. I called him an arrogant prick.

Now, Window Snyder (interesting name), head of security at the Mozilla Foundation, essentially screws him by saying that those "ten fucking days" are not Mozilla policy:

This is the official Mozilla word: This is not our policy. We do not think security is a game, nor do we issue challenges or ultimatums. We are proud of our track record of quickly releasing critical security patches, often in days. We work hard to ship fixes as fast as possible because it keeps people safe. We hope these comments do not overshadow the tremendous efforts of the Mozilla community to keep the Internet secure.

Take that Mike.
