Upgrade Firefox or lose all your Gmail

Here’s the best reason I’ve heard to upgrade your browser in a long time.  Apparently a number of people are finding their gmail accounts wiped clean.  This is potentially linked to a known security flaw in Firefox 2.0 which was fixed in 2.0.0.1 related to cross-site scripting (XSS).  So upgrade your firefox, yo.

I’ve heard from security experts that FF has way more problems than IE does, but it just doesn’t get attacked as much.  I hate to say it, but we’re probably already living in a world where all software not only has bugs but has security bugs too.  We just gotta learn to live with it.

We might say “google should keep backups.” But then again, for a lot of
things, we probably don’t want google to keep backups. The gubment can
read backups, afterall. Data security vs. privacy is an intrinsic
trade-off that people don’t seem to think of much yet.
