    Excluding 3 of those security holes, all of them belong to Microsoft, when are they going to be patched?

    Unfortunately, we don't give dates for security fixes. We try our best to ensure quality (I'm in test, so I get my hands dirty with this sort of thing), and that means being willing to push a ship date until the fix is correct and as close to regression-free as possible. Sometimes a two-line code fix can have implications for hundreds of thousands of code paths. It would look pretty bad if we publicly slipped a fix three times.

    Ah, man... And all this time I thought you guys wrote code with Magic Wands.  Smiley

    Seriously, thanks to you guys working in test for taking the time to analyze this stuff.  I'm sure it's a thankless job.
