Ex-Mozilla security boss Window Snyder has joined Apple.

Snyder, who worked at Mozilla between 2006 and 2008, and is credited 
with making Firefox's security response more professional, joins Apple 
after a spell in consulting.

Prior to joining Mozilla, Snyder worked at Microsoft where she acted as 
security lead on Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 
2003 and at security consultancy @stake.

Synder started work with Apple on Monday as senior security product 
manager, IDG reports.

Apple has a reputation, mostly deserved, of not playing well with 
security researchers who discover flaws in its technology. Snyder has a 
proven track record of building bridges, so her recruitment has already 
been welcomed as a positive step towards detente.
