The Insider Threat
You can blame the vendors all you want, but if you read carefully, it's requires a rogue local admin to take advantage of a vulnerability.  What you should really be amazed with is the poor background check of employees.  Too often, organizations hire loose-cannons, who would are and always have been known as "the greatest threat".  Organizations need to focus on their personnel just as much, and need to vet out those who are likely to hold a grudge for whatever personal reason.

Re: Grrrrr
It really is a  major embarassment for these companies. I hope the researchers make these security "bakeoffs" a regular event. Maybe that will keep the vendors on their toes.

Re: Grrrrr
What's so baffling is that these are SECURITY companies. Sure, they have software dev of their own, but it's discouraging if they're not practicting what they preach. No one expects software to be perfectly clean and free of all bugs, but you would think they would regularly vet the stuff. <sigh>

Grrrrr
It's always frustrating to hear that security controls are, themselves, insecure. It's also frustrating to hear that the Web-facing side is the problem. Lately the security world has been talking alot about passwords (and rightly so) but now that so much sensitive activity happens online, I'd like companies to get more serious about Web apps' security.

More to come
One thing Zach and Kelly said was that this research is only the beginning. They plan to drill down further on DLP vulns, so consider this phase one.
