Submission + - Netgear Attacks Firefox Security

Caballero writes: "Netgear sent out the following email attacking Firefox security to promote their ProSecure line of products:

Many SMEs are using open source products like Firefox. Open source delivers cost control, scalability, reliability, and extensibility advantages. However, open source computing platforms have their own set of vulnerabilities, bugs, and back doors security exploits.

In this blog, Web Browser Vulnerability Report, ProSecure determined that the Firefox browser, based on open-source Mozilla, accounted for 44 percent of all browser vulnerabilities reported in the first half of 2009!

Rolling out open source computing is cost efficient, but before embarking on open source projects, small businesses must have the right infrastructure in place to protect applications and users from malware, web and email threats.

In the past year, webChattr's grown as a favored chat destination and chat platform by many enthusiastic iPhone, iPod Touch and Web users, as well as site owners.

This year will be Apple's last MacWorld appearance and the keynote address will be delivered by Phil Schiller. webChattr will once again be hosting a live chat at 9am Pacific Time during the 2009 MacWorld San Francisco Keynote Address.

Those 2 chat rooms will be accessible in an interface optimized for iPhone (even slow EDGE/3G connectivity) and iPod Touch users, as well as all desktop Web Browsers. Web Site operators will also be able to include a custom-sized chat widget of the event on any web page, available thru Widgetbox."
