Bugs & Viruses Whenever the Conficker worm comes up here on OSNews (or any other site for that matter) there are always a number of people who point their fingers towards Redmond, stating that it's their fault Conifcker got out. While Microsoft has had some pretty lax responses to security threats in the past, it handled the whole Conficker thing perfectly, releasing a patch even before Conficker existed, and pushing it through Windows Update. In any case, this made me wonder about Linux distributions and security. What if a big security hole pops up in a Linux distribution - who will the Redmond-finger-pointing people hold responsible?

When the engine seized up - whose fault is it?

My f*&king brother's fault. Who did that same thing on a long trip, and just ignored the light. The good thing is that he learned his lesson. Now he's like a self made mechanic or something.

That b*stard. It's all his fault! Does he have money? Can we sue him?
