I'll say something in Microsoft's defence. At least Microsoft found the error, rather than what normally happened in the past. Some
person from who lives in the middle of no-where, little or no computer experience trips over a security bug. Now they have found the
bug, and posted a patch, is this the last we will hear of this particular issue? or will there be more? I'm not saying there
shouldn't be bugs found, however, what I am saying is that bugs of the same type, in the same application should not pop up again,
and again and again. Once fixed, that should be the end of the story.
