Vulnerability Reporting
« on: March 13, 2002, 04:06:38 PM »
This is an excerpt from a newsletter I got...

"The biggest flaw you never saw
Remember Microsoft's announcement last week of a security hole in its version of the Java Virtual Machine? Tech Update's Wayne Rash has bad news and good news. The bad: that vulnerability wasn't limited to Microsoft; it covered all JVMs. The good: By the time the problem was reported, it was already fixed. Vendors had worked together in secrecy for a year to fix it, and no hackers exploited it. That's the way it's supposed to work, right? Rash says you might not be so lucky next time."

Uhm... No hackers exploited it???  Guess these guys have never heard of 0day??? Muahahaha!   :P

Yeah, just because it didn't go public didn't mean it never got overlooked. They're just trying to play it off....
