Or how about blame the manager that didn't put money/time into the
budget/project for making it secure and the programmer gets told "that will
be added in version 2".

What a clueless moron that guy is David.

And I agree with you. And if QA fails, that is the companies fault.

Uh huh ... right.  Blame the programmer.  Not the vendor that failed to
perform adequate QA on the software.

Program bugs are inevitable ... that's the nature of things.  Those bugs,
however, should be caught before the code is released.  That's what QA is
all about.

JMHO, of course.
