    Programmers are copying security flaws into your software

    Interesting article about why there are so many Federal/business hacks going on. Open doors are left in the name of speed or incompetence.

    WOW That's pretty scary, I assume that Samsung knows a lot more than MS LOL. But then again, look at some of the updates that MS have put out and then had re-re-re- issue.

    Code inspections go a long way in catching this kind of stuff.

    Software development teams need the discipline, and the time, to do them.

    Often, product/project delivery schedules (not set by the developers) are so tight that many times any activity other than writing and integrating code, gets thrown out the window.
