Microsoft Patches Another Patch  

Microsoft is sending out a revised security patch for Exchange Server 5.5 and 2000. That's not exactly a front page news item. What caught my eye was the fact that, far from reporting these people to the FBI, Microsoft has actually THANKED someone for pointing out the bugs! Here's the section of the patch notification letter that prompted me to blog this-

"Microsoft thanks the following for working with us to protect

- - João Gouveia (joao.gouveia@vodafone.com)
for reporting the issue described in MS03-046.

- - Ory Segal of Sanctum Inc. (http://www.sanctuminc.com/)
for reporting the issue described in MS03-047. "

Amazing is not too strong a word. Let it be known that unlike some petrified organizations, MicrosoftCAN change. I guess that's part of what has kept them on top, over the years.
