ok obviously you never worked for a big corporate entity :)
sure standing up to them is fine
after shouting about the bug for 4 months i thought bah why bother its
their asses not mine
just going in and fixing a bug without the mandate is usually not a good
idea (if you want to keep your job so you can pay your bills that is..)
If you have been hired by the company in a security capacity (because they
budgeted for that need, for whatever reason), and you have not lost your
credibility with them (because you're some spotty script kiddie and can
converse with them at a business level), then I've always found that you
are listened to, taken very seriously and usually have a direct route to
the CEO, CIO, COO or the whole board of directors.
If you're not listened to on the matters of security, then security is
probably a passtime of yours and not the main role of your employment, or
you're just one of those annoying geeky spotty script kiddies who moans
about whatever is getting the bad press at the moment.
