Re: I wonder
Thanks for replying. I hope there are some major improvements in security, especially when the potential for damage is so high if someone were to begin infecting IOT devices on a large scale. That and privacy concerns are some of the reasons I just don't touch wearables yet. I'm waiting for the one that champions my privacy over everything else.

Re: Quality?
 @moarsauce123-- you  bring up both good and interesting points.  When a software breach hits home, meaning when our personal lives are impacted, you will start to see this mindshift... Actually, we are starting to see some signs of things shifting.. There has to be a greater emphasis on improving software quality, improving software development, and improving the tools that are used to analyze software for security and quaility issues.  They all go hand in hand.. Thanks for your response.   enjoy the holidays!!!

Re: I wonder
@Whoopty -- you and me both.  I'm encouraged though.  I know with my Software Assurance program, I'm trying to address the issues by provide technologies, capabilities, tools, and infrastructure to those who are responsible with all aspects of software development. #thereIShope   :)

Excellent Perspective of Patching
A well written article with a entirely fresh and different perspective of Patch Management , a pain point of many organizations. It is time we think of unconventional and out of the box strategies to close the gap between discovering a vulnerability and patching it up. 

In some cases internal fixing can also be recommended , instead of waiting for a fix by the Vendor themselves

Everything You Need to Know About DNS Attacks
It's important to understand DNS, potential attacks against it, and the tools and techniques required to defend DNS infrastructure. This report answers all the questions you were afraid to ask. Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical part of any organization's digital infrastructure, but it's also one of the least understood. DNS is designed to be invisible to business professionals, IT stakeholders, and many security professionals, but DNS's threat surface is large and widely targeted. Attackers are causing a great deal of damage with an array of attacks such as denial of service, DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijackin, DNS tunneling, and DNS dangling. They are using DNS infrastructure to take control of inbound and outbound communications and preventing users from accessing the applications they are looking for. To stop attacks on DNS, security teams need to shore up the organization's security hygiene around DNS infrastructure, implement controls such as DNSSEC, and monitor DNS traffic
