Firefox 3, day 6: security flaw and banks
Mon, 23 Jun 2008 11:23:01 +0100
I've also been sent another update to the page on Online Banking with GNU/Linux, Firefox-based browsers or Free Software (first direct plus using ActiveX) - I wonder if any bankers will be noticeably slow to allow FF3 and will any of them cite this security flaw? I hope not - UK online banking security is hardly in a good place to throw stones.
I was mildly surprised that the list was linked from Ashley Highfield's BBC blog on Testing Linux Ubuntu but I've no idea why he doubts the list's accuracy! It's as accurate as its contributors - most of whom I name - and I'm willing to put my name to it too. That's better than Wikipedia, which the BBC uses far too much IMO. Would he trust the list more if it was anonymously-edited on a public site? Anyway, I guess I should move that list to a more permanent location soon.
