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.
