 Death to Old Software

Security Focus brings us: Death to Old Software.

"One of the big problems with open source software is that, without a base of registered users, it's difficult to ensure that users have actually patched their software for the latest security holes. Unlike Novell, who can find all licensed users of their server products and impress upon them the importance of a security patch, you can't even tell who's running any particular open source package."
