Database Vendors Shouldn't Kill the Messenger

I saw a good news article on eWeek earlier in the week and made a note to have a look. The article is written by Charles Garry and is titled "Database Vendors Shouldn't Kill the Messenger". The article starts with this opinion:

"Opinion: Hackers are a bigger problem than indiscreet security researchers, and vendors should focus on protecting their databases, not their reputations."

This is quite an interesting article with some good comments on the recent Mary Ann Davidson article that lambasted security researchers.
