    What's the betting this is one of the issues?

    At the Black Hat security conference on Wednesday, Ryan Smith, Mark Dowd and David Dewey are scheduled to show how to bypass the "kill-bit" mechanism that Microsoft frequently deploys to shut down buggy ActiveX controls.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
