The world of mobile applications appear to have become one where vulnerability
disclosure and awareness are not necessary. Until there are fully automated

Mobile is a step backwards in software security (back to about the
mid-1990s) due to patching. Or more correctly, lack thereof. I've been
bitching about it for years.
I'm convinced the only way to fix it is through legislation and
software liability laws. Waiting for companies to "do the right
liability laws might kill a lot of OSS warez as a side effect.
Perhaps. I believe it will improve those that remain (survival of the fittest?).
Folks like Google and Red Hat might have to take a proactive approach
to limit their liability. It might hurt folks like Dan Rosenberg, who
make their careers out of finding Comp Sci 101 bugs in the kernel.
(Nothing against Dan - he does a great job).
btw, m$ lusers agree to "CLASS ACTION WAIVER":
IF YOU LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES, SECTION 10 CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. IT
AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS ABOUT HOW TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE WITH MICROSOFT. PLEASE READ IT.
10.4. Class action waiver. Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely
on an individual basis. Neither you nor Microsoft will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any
other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or
proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected
arbitrations or proceedings.
Its not just Microsoft.
The courts (in the US) are starting to limit those obscene Terms of
Its another legal absurdity to me: you are given a protection, then
corporate america tries to get you to wave it. I guess that's why my
undergrad and grad degrees are computer science and not law.
