I wrote a piece on searchsecurity.com that might be of interest:
New vulnerabilities are discovered and disclosed with alarming frequency these days. Like clockwork, 10 vulnerabilities are found each day to augment the leaks in our already-sinking ships. And we welcome the news with masochistic greed. The reality is that these newest vulnerabilities, regardless of individual identity and characteristics, are comfort food for security professionals, giving us work to do that appears useful and yet contributing to an overall weakening of defenses in our computing infrastructure.
