For Pale Moon users: you're protected

Post by cecilieaux »

Although I recognize that browsers are only one vector for possible malware, after hearing that Firefox updated itself in response to Meltdown and spectre, I went searching for data on Pale Moon and found that, this Firefox spinoff is protected thanks to implementation decisions in 2016. For more information, see https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.ph ... +Pale+Moon.

Just thought folks would like to know.

Well that's a great info, indeed.
I was wondering if PM had a note on these bugs on its home page, perhaps a download update is available, but no.
It's a pitty PM homepage hasn't been refreshed since Nov 2017 :(
