Microsoft, with their legions of programmers, have to rely on uncompensated third parties to write patches for their worthless software. From the story:
The group, calling itself the Zeroday Emergency Response Team, or ZERT, created the patch so Windows users can protect their PCs while Microsoft works on an official update. People have a choice of third-party fixes. Security company Determina on Friday released a patch it authored for the same flaw.Personally, I find this completely unacceptable. I also find it to be the norm when dealing with large corporations and their worthless products.
Microsoft plans to issue a fix for the problem on Oct. 10, its regularly scheduled patch day; pretty much meets the description of "a day late and a dollar short".
