re: Microsoft Fingers Chinese Firewall/IPS Vendor In Windows Exploit Leak
What we have done is put short term profits ahead of all other considerations. The CEOs who are shipping American manufacturing jobs, technology and know-how overseas in the interest of seeing a quick rise in stock prices have put their necks in this noose. What else do you expect if you are a company that allegedly sells security if you give your enemy the keys to the castle?

"Trust, but verify." Well, maybe not. Like Pakistan sheltering the Taliban & Osama Bin Laden, China is also playing both sides of the table at all times. Because they manufacture most of the IT infrastructure that we all rely on, they are in a unique position to exploit network vulnerabilities even shortly after they have been patched. This should give us pause: is there really any such thing as "private information" any more? High profile hacks to high security companies like RSA prove that any computer network that is attached to the Internet is, ultimately, hackable by those with the means, motive and opportunity to try. The West does NOT control the Information Age anymore, and information is only of REAL value to those in a position to act on it. The Global Supply Chain & Capital Funding systems are increasingly converged in China, who is in the most ideal position to act on stolen intellectual property. What have we done to ourselves, and why have we done this?
