Internet Explorer Vulnerabilities, Open Source and Another Debian-Based Distribution

Saturday 9th July 2005

Category: News

Turns out that the Java that comes with Internet Explorer has an exploit, which I'm sure everybody is very surprised about. If you don't use Internet Explorer, there's nothing to worry about. If you do use Internet Explorer (which I don't recommend!), you should fetch Sun's proper version of Java.

Elsewhere on the internet, the two licences for open source are looked at: BSD and GPL. Speaking of free software, Mandriva, Progeny and Turbolinux are apparently going to be releasing a Debian-based distribution.
