Joe,

http://www.immunitysec.com/services-sharing.shtml has the answers to your questions about the Immunity VSC, but my point was specifically about bugs that Microsoft knew about, but didn't think the public did. In Linux's case, said bugs would have a detailed advisory. In Microsoft's case, such bugs are wrapped into the next service pack silently.

Private firms such as Immunity and several others in the market often close the gaps, but it's likely that hackers have had such bugs for long periods of time.

Do you report to MS as well or just within your club that you charge people
to be part of? Has MS responded to you if you did report it? What was their
response that makes WINS a classic example?

That's a good question for your Microsoft sales rep. If you want technical
details, Immunity has a working and reliable Wins exploit in the
Vulnerability Sharing Club version of CANVAS. I think there's an interesting
difference between how the Linux community handled the recent kernel bugs,
and how Microsoft and other commercial vendors handle all bugs.
