Mozilla Foundation Taking Open Source Security Seriously
mlnews last edited by
The Mozilla Foundation is taking open source security to the next level by starting a fund to invest into security code audits of open source code. This is not audits of Mozilla code, but audits of "all" open source code. A step towards improving quality and faith in open source code with audits that are open to all instead of requiring individual companies to audit code on their own.

The acronym SOS (Secure Open Source) really isn't the best one is it?
Save Our Souls.... many people who haven't the slightest clue might immediately think that open source is dangerous and that auditing is required because of "how insecure it must be".
I'm totally for it but I'm curious as to why they couldn't come up with a better name / acronym.
