In my opinion he spurts a mix of unsubstantiated techno babble and
disinformation marketing.  Like most things, there is likely a little
truth to it, but I wouldn't consider anything he says as factual.  If
you choose to believe him, maybe you should also adopt my supposition
that Microsoft is merely a front for disseminating alien mind control
technology.  And sorry, tin foil hats won't protect you; only anchovies
in your ears will do that.

Can anyone else verify Steve Gibson's assertion that this flaw was
intentionally placed by Microsoft programmers?

Hi all,

I must weigh in on this with an analogy.  Asking software companies to

offer free patches to software whose core technologies are considered 
out of date by the mainstream industry is like asking Ford Motor 
company to offer free airbag installations in all 1920 vintage
automobiles.
