here's my favorite quote:

"The Response Center investigates all reported security vulnerabilities in
Microsoft products. When we find a vulnerability, we develop a patch as
quickly as possible and broadly disseminate information about the
vulnerability, the risk it poses, and what customers can do to protect
themselves against it."

hehe, yeah. right.  while not EXACTLY a lie, it's not EXACTLY the truth,
either. "quickly as possible" could mean a year because they gave no time
frame. "broadly disseminate information" could also just mean that they
post information on their website, but you still have to go LOOKING for
that information. I really love legal-speak.
