Symantec Left A Back Door Open For Five Months!

This just gets weirder and weirder. My July 30th Register carried the story (read it here) how Symantec was notified on Feburary 22nd of an end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it vulnerability that they sat on until July 25th. I guess when then-FBI Director Mueller asked Silicon Valley to build back doors into their stuff (see my story here), Symantec hopped onto the band wagon. Conclusion? My BIGFIX ads attacking Symantec didn't go nearly far enough, eh?

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
