If the WMF vulnerability teaches us anything, it teaches us that we need

BTW, the final countdown for the release of my new book "Software
Security" has begun (I have yet to see an actual copy).  I'll keep you


p.s. Hope to see many of you in person at the Software Security Summit
in La Jolla next week.
