The technical report (pdf) outlines the concept of cruising the Web with multiple automated Windows XP clients - some unpatched, some partially patched, some patched completely - to hunt for Web sites that exploit browser vulnerabilities.

I'd love to work somewhere with a bloated IT workforce rather than be understaffed, and chasing fires caused by the latest XP exploit. I imagine I cold actually get some *work* done if the IT workforce was bloated! Sign me up for bloated IT workforce, stat!

WTF does outsourcing have to do with industry "bloat?" Outsourcing is despicable, short-sighted, and irresponsible, but it doesn't make things bloated.
