So for about three days there were no attacks. Then Microsoft posted, "Nobody has found a hole in three days!" Suddenly everyone was back hammering on it again.
The only problem there is the customer gets messed over trying to find out what the hackers did. It seems eaiser to me to get the bugs worked out and then release it to the public not the other way around.
Well, that would be the nice way to go about it... but I guarantee a company like Microsoft would have to pay most self-respecting hackers a lot more money to "come to the dark side" and help them QA their products than they have to pay a wage-slave phone support "tech."
Phone support is a high turn-over cr@p job that pays garbage... like the McDonalds job of the tech industry. A good security expert would be a premium employee, who'd have to get paid enough to drown out the little voice in the back of his head whispering, "sell out!" whenever he tried to sleep. ;)
Just goes to show how much I need my morning coffee.:)
