Microsoft Whilst it's not okay in Microsoft's eyes for Google to install a plugin into Internet Explorer, increasing the potential surface area of attack, when Microsoft do it to Firefox, it's a different matter. Now a security hole has been found in a plugin that Microsoft have been silently installing into Firefox.

Sorry but .net is too useful as a platform and is a security improvement over traditional Win32 c++ development.

This is a case that shows we need better security when it comes to plugins. If you actually wanted to keep developers away from a type of plugin for security reasons you would have a better case with flash.


I guess you still don't know who invented .NET? It's the company which just forced to break Firefox where this article just emphasized. So you appreciate their tools that may have tons of these broken security issues? Interesting.
