Re: Don't be........
"Got lynched" - no you didn't. Someone asked what a microphone had to do with testing and that was about it.
Do you have a persecution complex?

Yes, there are several faulty assumptions in his thinking.
Firstly, that vulnerabilities are being immediately made public. In most cases they are not.
Secondly, that black hats are learning about these vulnerabilities from the disclosures. While some will, if the vulnerability exists it may already have been discovered and be being actively exploited.
Third, that the only way to be safe is with a vendor provided patch. In many instances a configuration change can eliminate the vulnerability albeit at the cost of functionality or performance loss.
