It's strange article, all over the article the author says that there is too much information released about security vulns, but in the conclusion he says that he wants full disclosure.

Also, his main argument is that the press is dumb, so we should hide the information from them. I don't like that idea. Why not react to press articles and explain what is smart and what is not, that way reporters will learn and hopefully make better articles.

Maybe I'm in a bad mood, but it seems that this article is really strange/bad.
