    >>"Every group that contributes to the CD has drawn up a plan to
    mitigate security risks," Howard said. Key to the plans is a measure
    of success--how the groups will know when they are done, he added."
    >>I suppose what really bothers me here is that MS is doing rapid
    security "training" and then these people, who wrote insecure software
    in the first place, are then the same ones writing their gameplan to
    fix it.  Ummmm, who's checking the homework here?  
    And bother you should be - but our group is - we have reviewed every
    plan, and made comments and feedback on every plan. just 'coz the
    press aricle doesn't mention the entire game plan, doesn't mean you
    understand the entire game plan.
    Moral: Be careful of what you read in the press
