As for IBM revealing stuff, I had to deal with an auditor who demanded
documentation for security patches. I told her the neither Mr. Ernst nor
Mr. Young couldn't get IBM to reveal those secrets.

Recently I remarked how much things are changing. I just want to paste
this recent announcement as further proof:

It's important you scroll down through it to notice things like
<paraphrased>
"This is a particular hack that someone could use to easily penetrate your
system. Here's where it is documented on the internet how to execute that
hack. If you download this fix it will close that hack."
</paraphrased>

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it" is the biggest pile of horse excrement.
