    thank you Govt,

    their exisence has been repetadly proven whilst there nonexistence has been as much each time disproven. so, it stands to reason there will be more when the next one comes i shall be proven correct so it is pointless to argue otherwise.

    Right, but what proof do you have that MS hasn't patched up all the holes? (bear with me - it'd be extremely difficult to patch up everything) Everytime they patch a hole, it brings them that much closer to having it locked up tight, so how do you know they're not done now?

    not true, each patch can also introduce many new holes and this is often the case...

    >so how do you know they're not done now?

    do you realize each time you ask this question i can answer it with

    "So how do you know they are?"

    there is no solution to this argument until the next "Hole" is or is not found you case can only be proven if by the end of time no other hole has been found where-as mine is proven as soon as a hole is found.

    You're right, and round and round we go. I'm just saying you can't assume there are holes unless you can find them. Likewise, I can't assume there aren't any holes unless I (and everyone else) can't find any. I'm not really trying to prove anything, tho - I don't know enough about security to do that. I'm just trying to see if you'll point out a hole that's not fixed.

    give up, I won't point out a hole, so all of you can stop drooling.
