Re: [Full-disclosure] Firefox 2.0.0.7 has a very serious calculation bug



Dear Jimby,

Please read the list charter.

What if this issue has security implications that we are unaware
of? It is important to saturate this list with any and all reports
of software misbehavior (or perceived misbehavior) so that Vladis
and the other aged mailing list participants can show off that they
have nothing to offer aside from stale sarcastic responses.

"yo dude i was first poster on teh bugtraq in 1992ad and haven't
shut up since and am moar stupid that teh blue baor but i will not
shut up"

Shut up Vladis.

How is this serious and is it related to security in any manner?

PoC concept here:
javascript:5.2-0.1

Firefox 2.0.0.7 result: 5.1000000000000005 (WRONG!)
Internet Explorer 7 result: 5.1 (OK)
