Making Software Vendors Liable For Security
from the good-or-bad? dept
I’m still not sure how I feel about this, but here’s yet another article saying that software makers should be liable for software that has weak security. To some extent, I agree. Right now, software vendors have no liability issues, and in many cases they don’t seem to care at all about security. However, it is nearly impossible to make completely secure software, and having them liable for every single hole would make it a very expensive proposition (especially for smaller companies) to ever commercialize any sort of software product.
