You can bet they well capitalize on these (I bet they haven't even 
noticed yet) but I highly doubt they had anything to do with it.  I bet 
a few MS Devs are aware of the security issues but in general MS hasn't 
noticed yet; when they do you can bet Infoworld/news.com/microsoft.com 
will be plastered with it.
