    HP has put out a red alert for users of the Netscape browser on
    HP-UX, saying this software pairing could result in no less than
    total destruction.

    HP customers have been strongly urged to remove Netscape and
    install Mozilla on HP-UX 11, 11.11, 11.22 and 11.23. The continued
    use of Netscape on HP's operating system could result in "denial
    of service attacks, information leaks, unauthorized access and
    remote unauthorized code execution." Not a pleasant list. Along
    with its warning, HP has dropped support Netscape on HP-UX.

    This move by HP is no shocker since much more attention is being
    paid these days to Mozilla - the open source basis of Netscape.
    Mozilla for HP-UX is available here.
