Phil meant that "Netscape on Linux" was vulnerable.

Even if so, Linux's security model works better than Win95/Win98,
because Netscape is presumably running as a user, so the cracker
won't be able to see anyone else's home directories even if the
exploit works.

I wonder if Mozilla is vulnerable . . . .
