Week of Vista bugs is a hoax
Month (or weeks/days/...) of bugs: We try to give them as little publicity as possible in order to discourage the behavior and encourage a bit more responsibility than to disclose vulnerability details in a blog.

Now with April 1st just behind us we were ready for a good laugh with people falling for a hoax or two, but once it's April 2nd, you expect people to resume normal behavior.

Still the first installment of the week of Vista bugs seemed bad on reading it diagonally, but just unfounded and hard to believe at all upon closer inspection.

A friendly contact gave us this link:
Where the perps expose their own hoax.

Just don't believe everything you read on the Internet ... not even on April 2nd and the days after it.

And forget the Week of Vista bugs unless you urgently need a laugh.
