Mozilla is beating the drum for an Open Web at their new project page “Drumbeat“. Mitchell Baker, the Chair of the Mozilla Foundation has been regularly blogging about a more Open Web and what it might mean for us. There is lots of talk about openness, decentralization, freedom and public resources of the public Internet, […]
Just recently the new Firefox version 3.5 was released with many new features, whistle and bells….native video and audio support being one of them. Porn private browsing mode and super fast rendering just another. If you haven’t updated and tried the latest and greatest from the house of Mozilla, I highly recommend to do that […]
Phishing attacks seldom use SSL certificates for their fake sites resembling Paypal, eBay or whatever, because they look as good without it. So far this apparently just worked fine because a somewhat careless user simply doesn’t pay attention to the microscopic indicators the browsers used to give us in the past. Well, that’s perhaps an […]
From the outside it’s just another Thunderbird as we know it - with some user interface changes and tweaks. But under the hood, the groundwork was laid for many future improvements and additions. The bird will have the Lightning calendar offered as a default installation option in its final version - and with it introduce […]
(If you happen to know what an MITM attack is, fast forward to here)

The new Firefox 3 browser is approaching fast its final release to the public and millions of fans will download the new product from Mozilla this month.

Long before browser vendors decided that the infamous padlock isn’t sufficient anymore for indicating a secure connection, I felt that I’d like to know much more about the certificates websites are using. Until today I either knew if the certificate was issued from one of the root certificates the browser vendor deemed trustworthy enough to […]
Today I received the email shown below, which looked like a phishing attempt to me, since I don’t have an account at Moneybookers.com and the mail was sent typically to “undisclosed-recipients“. Hovering over the link in the mail revealed the URL https:// my.secure-ssl.net/www.moneybookers.com/app/directory.php?cmd=login (I deliberately broke the link).
I’m going to give you a better understanding about what extended validation (EV) means and what it really gives to you. Throughout many discussion at Mozilla and elsewhere - and specially since my last article about spoofing the secure state of the upcoming Firefox browser, EV certificates are touted by many as the solution […]
In just a few days the new Firefox 3 browser from the house of Mozilla will be release. Except of course if another re-build of the current release candidate has to be made, which would push the publishing of the newest browser to sometime in June. One such reason could be the ease somebody can […]
