It does not matter at all what you or I expect as far as software reliability.

If a company suffers a loss because a security breach occurs where RIM can be faulted, to protect itself that company will most likely go after RIM, and they will most likely win.

That is the only point I am trying to make here. If you decide to argue with that, by all means do, but please stop arguing with a point I never made.

And the difference between this bug and others, I think, is that with most security flaws, someone must actively attempt some illegal activity to exploit it. This one was flinging data out there all by itself.

This is the last post I intend to make on this thread.
