Re: The worse news

Your average criminal couldn't care less about having source or not. Tools to analyze binaries to see what changed have been available for a very long time, they're just illegal to use on proprietary software. Not like that'll stop the criminals though.

All your implied suggestion would do is make it so that *only* the criminals know about the bug, and no one else can patch their systems. Great idea, that!
