Subject: no more public exploits

I agree, tis a shame.  So many places I know that refuse to patch until
someone can show them an actual exploit that goes crashing through their
defenses.  After all, "we have a firewall in place".  After all,
"...Microsoft (or insert almost any other vendor) says they are secure".
After all, "why would someone hack us?".  Unfortunately they don't realize
that just because I don't have a tool that will do this doesn't mean that
someone out on the net doesn't.

Even though I think that the publication of your code might have been a
couple of weeks too soon: too bad you chose to abandon full disclosure. A
lot of people do not have the skills to transform theoretical
vulnerabilities into practical exploits. With the lack of proof that the
vulnerability can really be exploited, a lot of sysadmins will decide not to
patch, leaving the holes in tact for the real blackhats, that have
possession of the malicious code anyway....
