Sad to see a brilliant mind so weak-willed, but no sympathy for those who rely heavily / exclusively on a piece of software with too much power within its reach. Edit: And developed externally at that too.

User passwords and rermissions were designed in Linux to be a barrier to such "catastrophies", but all it takes is a single bad vulnerability to be exploited.

I hope the other control panels will do a code freeze, and send the time trawling their current codes to make sure there is nothing that can lead to such catastrophies.

Some of the vulnerabilities were highlighted in http://securityreason.com/wlb_show/WLB-2009060016
Some of them are really weak programming.
