So, who is responsible for the current security mess? Hackers? Crackers? Spammers? Greedy companies? Nooo, its the colleges who don't train the software developers to write secure code, claims the hilarious piece referenced here...

Programming in Computer Science Curricula
Here's the critical problem I have with the article: Computer Science curriculas focus on teaching theories and ideas (e.g. data structures, algorithms, graphics). Many Professors refrain from teaching students "how to program" --because they can buy a book and learn it from there. I do agree however that secure programming should be integrated into courses like Operating Systems and Computer Security.
