Let me get this straight. Microsoft makes a popular product that is vulnerable to certain forms of attack. Rather than choosing to fix the problem, they decide to create add-on products to get a share of the money spent on competing after-market products.

It is a very good thing that the public still chooses to use the popular products with known volunerabilities. A competitor might come along and take away their core business. At least the automotive industry had competitors and there was reasonable competition and improvement across the board.
