Regardless of the veracity of the article and who it is citing, if you write code, copy code, borrow code, and mash it together to make something you issue to the public, you are the end party who is responsible for making sure that what you hand out for cash and under contract is quality - here I chuckle, chortle and choke back giggles until I am blue in the face - there appears to be no such thing as perfect, air tight and totally safe code in existence, and the situation is exacerbated by the fact that there appears to be no such thing as a desire to try and make sure what most companies chose to run their businesses and/or products on. That costs money.....sheesh.
