Should Developers Be Sued For Security Holes?

vchoy Depends on the intention (550 comments)

If the security hole introduced intentionally with malice, or nothing is done about a known security bug, then getting sued maybe on the cards...
It depends on the impact the security hole...eg privacy or information breach.

If the security hole was introduced without malice or fixed in time, or does not have major impact (ie affects only test data, or performance...), then you're unlikely to have a case for litigation.

Are Spammers Giving Up?

vchoy Home Junk mail, cold callers (327 comments)

Do I get less junk mail in my letter box at home these days?
Do I get less call centre calls to my phone during dinner these days?

You get less if there are regulatory or filter restrictions in place. Doesn't reduce the number of people/organizations sending out or calling.
