Glenn Fleishman on the Metasploit AirPort Exploit

Glenn Fleishman:

In a fairly unresponsible move, the MoKB won’t provide information in advance in any systematic way to the affected operating systems or programs. In the security world, this is considered bad form, somewhere between taking a dump in a swimming pool and selling drugs to children. There’s little reason to not provide advance information to affected parties unless you’re trying to be clever, instead of smart.
