Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

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 for 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. ®
