security is not something we can just call "good enough" given how
trust we put into the browsers we use.
Note: I'm not saying Web doesn't take security concerns seriously
now. What i am saying we need to make sure and double check that they
I am responsible for Epiphany security. If you're aware of any
outstanding security issues, please let me know.
We had some difficulty releasing security advisories last year due to
internal changes within Apple. We now have a new contact with Apple and
were able to release ; we hope to be able to release smaller
advisories more frequently in the future now that has been solved.
Apple has a team of developers that fixes these security issues. In the
rare cases where security issues are discovered that do not impact
Apple, Igalia takes responsibility for fixing them. We had one such
issue last year, CVE-2015-2330. (I work for Igalia.)
The above are all WebKit vulnerabilities. If security issues are
discovered in Epiphany itself, Igalia will take responsibility for
fixing them, but this is quite rare.
