Subject: Organization for Internet Safety (OIS) formally
 announced

So this is a bunch of companies, now what?
I want to question the credibilty of this bunch.
Everyone can register an .org and claim to be the most important bunch on earth.
According to:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/news/standard.asp
from November 2001
"... @stake, Bindview, Foundstone, Guardent, Internet Security Systems and 
Microsoft announced their intention to form an organization whose purpose will 
be to propose industry standards for handling security vulnerabilities." 
(basically not to disclose 0days)
So what?
