Which adds to the full disclosure debate a resounding, disclose asap.  And
shows that many in the industry feel this is needed to not only address
issues in their envs as quickly as possible to mitigate problems until a
fix/poatch is available, but, that most feel dicslosure puts the pressure
on their vendors to respond to issues as they become discolsed.

Thanks,

Information Week just posted an article titled "Disclosure: Security
Pros Want Flaw Information Sooner" in which they surveyed 7,000
business technogology and security professionals.  66% argued for
immediate disclosure upon discovery, and another 32% wanted disclosure
once a patch was available, leaving only 2% who said that there was no
need to disclose vulnerabilities at all:

OK, so you're a Ph.D.  Just don't touch anything.
