Submission + - Mozilla Starts Hunting Down Software Bugs to Increase the Security of Firefox OS

SmartAboutThings writes: Mozilla and BlackBerry as partners? We don’t hear that too often. But this time they have joined together to develop and advance Peach, an open source tool that would allow them to discover software bugs before users are at risk. Peach has been created by Michael Eddington of Deja Vu Security and the development of a third major version has started more than eight years ago, in 2004. Mozilla has already used Peach to detect problems in essential HTML5 features like image and audio/video formats, fonts, WebGL, WebAudio and WebRTC. This means that we will get a safer Firefox browser and Firefox OS, since the mobile operating system is based on the HTML 5 structure.
