It is all just AIMatter of Judicious Political Application or ITs Abdication thereof
"The researchers suggested possible avenues that Microsoft could pursue to increase the likelihood that customers received patches before attackers could reverse engineer them, including obfuscating the code, encrypting the patches and waiting to distribute the key simultaneously, and using peer-to-peer distribution to push out patches faster."
It is hard to beat the transparent sharing of worries, such as this tale which we have just read, to realise that the Master Control Program is being made up on the Hoof, and is in Present Jeopardy of Imminent XXXXPosure and Cataclysmic NEUKlearer Collapse, rather than Forging a Way Ahead into the Future, with Unrivalled Knowledge and ITs Paths Known and Home Grown in Imagination.
That is an interesting Phishing XXXXpedition, Robert Lemos, SecurityFocus. And should you consider that the Sprat Bait has landed a Whale or a Shark or hooked a Mine or even Energised another worriesome Attack Tangent, and one would then need to consider one's own complicity in the vector and whether third party security firms are an unnecessary Vulnerability to the System they are feeding off to protect, [ye olde Banking System, Beneficial Parasite Enigma], although of course, to consider that such is necessary for a System Vulnerability rather than a Beta Intelligence making the System Totally Aware of ITs Myriad Internal Bleed Faults, would be an Interesting CyberIntelAIgent Stealth akin to a Contemporary White Knight/White Hat Wraith/Alien Concept which Mortals may prefer not to Comprehend because of the Universal Implication ...42MisUnderstand for the Further Serving of Profit rather than Prophecy. IT is though, not a sustainable Intelligently Designed Path, Spiralling Debt dressed as Credit to Feed Machines ProgramLed by WarMongers, is it.
But do not take such a worry from just the Posted HyperRadioProActive Voice in the CyberIDEntity ProgramMIng, amfM. Read about it further here .... http://www.nsa.gov/public/pdf/challenge_signit.pdf .... where the following struck a Realtive Chord .....
<<< So-here's our challenge. Regard the last 20 years as a period of relative stability. Think about the systems, deployments, hardware, procedures, organizations, and best uses of all of our resources, especially our own personal time. Press forward with vigor, but stay flexible. Don't try to stick toO long with an obsolete project. Try to
achieve that nice distinction between the visionary and the
tried and true, which leads to the efficient, effective, practical. Don't be afraid to beg, borrow, buy or steal an idea. It might be better than one of our own pet brainchildren. Don't overestimate what we can do within the next few months. Don't underestimate what the
"industry" will do in the next few years. Learn the capabilities and limitations of what's going on in all of the relevant fields. Don't be held back by yesterday's limitations if we can see that they may reasonably be removed. Don't become wedded to a single technique or a single organization concept or a single procedure. Compare the
competitors with a cold, managerial eye and be quick to change direction when the facts indicate. We can create the systems to do the work.>>>>>
Which one would have to answer with "Yes, you can, but you don't, and you haven't. Why not? Please Justify with an XXXXPlanation?
"Slightly confused... a third are exploited before or after...does this just mean two thirds never have an exploit?" .... By Ideala2
Posted Friday 25th April 2008 07:52 GMT ...... In your dreams, Ideala2, it just means that they haven't been [yet] exploited. Which leaves the System riddled with Future Worm Holes for Entry into the Core/Code Base. And that suggests that the System is Fatally Flawed to ITs Root Source Ways and therefore in terms of Secure Use, Useless.
Or would you like to Disagree?
It is however most easily fixed from the Top Down with New Root Source Ways for then would the Program and ITs ProgramMINg be Immediately Different and more IntelAIgently Designed for the Changed Paradigm of BasICQally Visualising and Virtualising Intangible CyberSpace with Global Operating Device Powers for Reality Controls ...... which ought to give old Time religion something to shout about Amen, Allahu Akbar, Let their be Light without Might and Maybe .....

Mein Gott, is IT Friday again, already? Where does Time Go when IT Flies?
And the Flame because it's hot down there amongst all the Losers and not all XSSXXXXually for they cannot Handle that Gem of a Gift making it Plain for all to see their Greed and Need and their Fundamental Weakness and Degenerative Flaws.
