Why not? What's to understand?

No, seriously - if this response has the appearance of someone that is trolling, I apologise for my inability to better choose my words.

Microsoft, Adobe [insert Corp name here] releases a product with proveable, re-producable errors in it. These flaws, and the understanding of how to exploit/avoid them are precious commodities - both for black-hat and white-hat types.

In computing, as in entertainment - it is the size of the market that dictates something/someone's monetary value. That's why national sports-stars and performing music artists can command so much money for a single performance, that's why the value of such an exploit is so high - the affected market is _huge_

If MS aren't prepared to throw a couple of drops in the ocean (that is the cost of development) to protect it, why not sell it to somebody that does value it?

You do realize I hope, that both the Stuxnet and the Flame virii made use of unpublished exploits. Exploits that then helped to offer access to the nuclear-enrichment control systems that Iran runs.

Do you wonder how the writers of these virii, or the finders of the exploits that facilitated their activities live with themselves?

I really am very curious as to just where you're coming from. Smile | :)
