Is This Microsoft's Biggest Security Blunder?

It truly is a sad day. Steve Riley, one of Microsoft's best public speakers/presenters/security people has been laid off in Steve Ballmer's run at trimming off the "fat". Honestly, I don't know how this thought could have even crossed Steve Ballmer's mind, let alone have progressed to the point of being enacted upon.

Microsoft lost Dr Jesper Johansson a while back when he moved to Amazon. As Dr J made a personal choice to have a career change, that's fine. He was definitely a loss to Microsoft (as well as a gain for Amazon), however that was Jesper's choice. Giving Steve Riley the arse makes no sense whatsoever.

Do you want a truly disturbing look into what's happening in at Microsoft post Bill Gates? Well, you got it!
