You call and report this vulnerability. You think you are a hero. But look at it from their point of view.

First they verify the problem, and its true. Now they know at least ONE person, you, knows about it. Do you think
they are going to tell you "we been aware of it for three years, but no one knew..." or maybe "... we followed up on

Responding to you might lead more hacks. Consider you *already* reported it to Slashdot. If I was them I would
work quietly on this and never respond to you. For all they know, you are ISIS.

Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? Yes, work never begun.
