Thanks for chiming in Pete. Your absolutely right. It's insulting when
people with hidden agendas inject their marketing materials as "feedback" or
"news" in this forum.

Hi,

Going back to the original comments about CORE IMPACT and the 'count of 
exploits' I'd like point out just that throwing numbers without 
qualifying the measurement criteria and the relevance of the methodology 
is not a very serious assessment of a product's capabilities, its 
suitability for a given use or the value it may provide to a security 
professional.

I'd like to add as a person not actually selling products or having any 
commercial ties to any software tool maker that Ivan is correct here. 
There are so many important variables to how a tool should work that 
judging on numbers alone of something that has no clear standard for how it 
should be counted is just ignorant.
