The Month of The Browser Bugs Begins
Researcher found another critical hole in IE, but Firefox and Safari aren't safe from attack.
So far he's living up to his promise.
H.D Moore is the co-author of the Metasploit Framework, an open source licensed platform for both the development and testing of exploit code.
Exploits for various Microsoft Internet Explorer browser flaws have been in the Metasploit in the past, including a particularly nasty, late-2005 zero-day Windows Metafile outbreak.
Moore claims in a recent blog post that he has notified the vendors.
Both Moore and Microsoft were unavailable for comment by press time.
Moore has designated July as the time for his Month of Browser Bugs (MoBB) project in which a new vulnerability will be published every day.
"This information is being published to create awareness about the types of bugs that plague modern browsers and to demonstrate the techniques I used to discover them," Moore wrote on his blog.
It is unclear how many of the vulnerabilities this month will be critical, but if early reports are any indication, it could be a lot.
