Kaminsky said the word is getting out about the patches, but there are
still many systems that are vulnerable. From the period of July 8
through July 13, 86 percent of the people testing their system on his
Web site were vulnerable. Today it's 52 percent. "Not perfect; not
even good enough," he said. But "I'll take 52 any day of week and
twice on Sunday."

I knew that large Internet companies were largely clueless on
security, among other things, but this is scary. Most systems wore
supposed to be able to apply the patch automatically. What did these
other loonburgers do?
