there is another interesting story at the register:

according to:

a female with the romantic name "*Window* Snyder" (security strategist for 
Microsoft) claims:

Moreover, the company found and fixed two classes of vulnerabilities that
have not been discovered elsewhere, she said.

"These are entire classes of vulnerabilities that I haven't seen externally,"
Snyder said. "When they found these, (the developers) went on a mission,
found them in all parts of the system, and got rid of them."

Snyder *remained mum on the details*, however, even giving the families of
vulnerabilities fake code names: "Ginger" and "Photon."

for those who missed it, m$ are keeping classes of bugs for themselves, but
they want everyone to cooperate with them and handle m$ their 0days, so
they have more bugs and billg have more $$$.

nice, clever and ethical plan.

where do you want bill gates to go today?
