Mozilla Foundation

The Mozilla Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to support and provide leadership for the open source Mozilla project. The organization sets the policies that govern development, operate key infrastructure and control trademarks and other intellectual property. It owns two taxable for-profit subsidiaries: the Mozilla Corporation, which employs several Mozilla developers and coordinates releases of the Mozilla Firefox web browser, and Mozilla Messaging, Inc., which primarily develops the Mozilla Thunderbird email client. The Mozilla Foundation is based in the Silicon Valley city of Mountain View, California, USA.

The Mozilla Foundation describes itself as "a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving choice and promoting innovation on the Internet". Mozilla Europe, Mozilla Japan and Mozilla China are non-profit organizations whose mission is to help promote and deploy Mozilla products and projects. They are independent of, but affiliated with, the Mozilla Foundation.

Mozilla Corporation

On August 3, 2005, the Mozilla Foundation launched a wholly owned subsidiary called the Mozilla Corporation to continue the development and delivery of Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird. The Mozilla Corporation takes responsibility for release planning, marketing and a range of distribution-related activities. It also handles relationships with businesses, many of which generate income. Unlike the Mozilla Foundation, the Mozilla Corporation is a taxable entity, which gives it much greater freedom in the revenue and business activities it can pursue.

Hacker breaks into Ecuador’s presidential website

Quito, Feb 11 (IANS) An investigation has been launched to find the hacker who broke into the website of Ecuador’s presidential office while it was undergoing maintenance, senior officials have said.

“Unscrupulous persons managed to enter the website and leave messages that had nothing to do with the national government,” said Carlos Medina, a member of the presidential communications office, Spain’s EFE news agency reported Monday.

The unidentified hacker entered the presidential website Saturday.

“We are currently conducting the necessary investigations to find out who was responsible,” Medina said.

According to media reports, the message left by the hacker on the presidential website expressed support for Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa and condemned corruption on the part of Jaime Nebot, the best-known opposition leader and mayor of Guayaquil, the largest and most populous city in the country.

However, the authorities quickly clarified that the message which appeared on the website did not represent the views of the government.
