security exploit prone? you're a fucking idiot

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 14, 2002 12:26 PM
How is code that nobody has seen exploit prone? It is a beta so i'm sure right now it IS unstable, and RIGHT NOW it probably has huge security holes. That the company might just want to fix before making the code public. I understand public scrutiny exposes holes very fast, but WHILE STILL IN ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT, I don't think a COMMERCIAL application would benefit from this scrutiny.
