Subject: no more public exploits

Sadly, for the most part, no.  But, don't just blame the sysadmins.  Also
blame the business owners who demand to see a person being electricuted
before they believe a wire is unsafe.  And blame the vendors for bundling
stealth updates along with their security fixes.  Stealth updates that
"accidentally" break competitors products.  There is plenty of blame to go
around.

That is a terrible policy to follow.  If the vulnerability is real enough
for the vendor to publish a patch, then sysadmins should patch their
systems.  Haven't all the recent worms taught people anything?
