Firefox developers have been forced to delay the release of the latest version of the open source browser. Instead of making the July release deadline for version 1.1, the software will instantly move to version 1.5 with a planed release date no sooner than August, according to the software's roadmap.
Firefox in the past months has faced some embarrassing security holes and could probably use the extra time to bolster testing procedures.
It just shows that hackers, spammers and other online dwelling scum don't play favourites between open source and proprietary software. If they spot a security hole, they'll happily use it.
So many options...
