In Case You Were Wondering: Software Will Remain Insecure
from the that-must-have-been-a-difficult-prediction dept
It's fun when people start coming out with absolutely obvious predictions for the future. Take, for example, this claim that software will remain insecure. Was there really anyone who thought otherwise? Our existing software infrastructure is layer upon layer of complexity, where every attempt at securing something probably just opens up more holes. Of course, this same guy is advocating that everyone sue Bill Gates for "the damage he has caused" from continually releasing insecure software. So, the claim is that software will remain insecure, but we should sue makers of insecure software? Sounds like a recipe for an awful lot of lawsuits -- and the sort of liability that would make developing software a pretty costly business.
