Re: The worse news

I wasn't suggesting closed source, I was saying that with open source the universe of people who can construct an exploit is MUCH larger, and open to the more "casual" criminal.

The problem in this case is that people are getting the source before patches are even released (not even to Pixel yet I don't think?) so they can construct exploits before even those who get their patches quickly have a shot at fixing it.
