Quote: "This is not a tool we should take seriously, or our customers should take seriously." - Edmund Muth of Microsoft, reacting to the release of Back Orifice, a program that attacks Windows 95/98 with a vengeance, by the Cult of the Dead Cow, as reported in the New York Times. We should point out that they said this BEFORE the program was released.
