    "Most developers don't really have any security training, so they don't know what to look for," said Steve Orrin, CTO of Sanctum, based in Santa Clara, Calif. "It's through no fault of theirs; we weren't taught anything about security in school. That's just starting to happen now. That's why something like this is needed. It gives them a roadmap of what to do."
    Actually it's been happening with Unix for years. It seems MS has only just figured it out. God forbid these people actually learn to program. Oh well, at least their hearts are in the right place. Good post.
