Scott Culp, Manager of the Microsoft Security Response 
Center, calls on security experts to "end information 
anarchy" and stop releasing sample code that exploits 
security holes in Windows and other operating systems. 
"It's high time the security community stopped 
providing the blueprints for building these weapons," 
Culp writes in the essay. "And it's high time that 
computer users insisted that the security community 
live up to its obligation to protect them." See 
the story on Cnet News.com."
