I do my best not to be petty. I try really hard.
But sometimes, i can't help but smile when the tables get turned. When it's to do with security, it shouldn't matter what the product is, it's not a laughing matter. But...after all the flack that microsoft gets, it's good to see it going back on the others for once.
In the last hour, i've been pointed at two different things. These are both via Robert Scoble, from whom i so often read interesting tidbits.
- Michael Howard did a check on security alerts in IIS 6, and Apache 2 (and 1.3). Part 1 - Part 2. End result? IIS 6 has less bugs (ok, i know this is an exageration. All they figures say is that less bugs were found and patched in IIS 6, but i'm sure people were looking hard :)
- Martijn Gorree fond a bugtraq entry showing how someone could crash pretty much every modern browser except IE. All it took was a bit of malformed html.
It's petty, i know, but sometimes i can't help but feel a little vindicated.
