bah! quit ur whining. i think it's funny anand. wd. :)
it was just an amusing way to bring it to everyones attention. also nick, if
you want to run a security argument, it is a much more secure method of raising
concerns since it was private (although i realise it was probably mostly a
prank / free software rant). we now have a public notification
(http://www.progsoc.uts.edu.au/lists/progsoc/current/msg00834.html) of a
security hole in software run on our network, thx nick. - if you had real
concerns you would have helped fix the problem _first_ then had ur whinge after.
