Somebody Else’s Problem

Comic Transcript

CUSTOMER: So… this new Firefox add-on…

ALEX: “NoClick.”

CUSTOMER: “NoClick?”

ALEX: That’s what it’s called. It’s a DOT NIT application that allows you to install software over the Internet without actually clicking on anything.

CUSTOMER: How?

ALEX: You embed a marker for the fie in your web page, and when Firefox loads the page the DOT NIT environment allows the file to be automatically installed on your PC.

CUSTOMER: How do you prevent people from using that technology to automatically install malware and viruses?

ALEX: It’s not our fault Mozilla can’t design a secure browser.
