Netscape Information for VU#869360

Unauthentic "Microsoft Corporation" certificates issued by Verisign to an unidentifed person

Status

Not Affected

Vendor Statement

Netscape takes all security and privacy issues very seriously. The Netscape browser does not allow the execution of ActiveX controls, signed or unsigned, and therefore Netscape users are not vulnerable to exploits which rely on signed ActiveX. In the unlikely event that Netscape users are presented with signed content from Microsoft requesting enhanced privileges, Netscape users can protect themselves by denying permission to any such request.
