           Summary: new Math.random isn't portable to Windows
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 412+
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: JavaScript
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: jhaygood at spsu.edu

As a result to the fix here
(http://bugzilla.opendarwin.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4026), Math.random isn't
portable to Windows.

Soon to be attatched patch makes it portable to Windows, using a Microsoft
extension to the C runtime that produces cryptographically secure numbers using
the CryptoAPIs found in Windows, and thus is probably as secure or even more so
than the standard implementations.
