    I knew that this would 'bite' MS in the end someday. I've constantly 'sent
    reports' to MS thru the years about their software NOT checking return codes
    when allocating buffers in software.

    I've sent reports over and over since Windows 95. Windows is fraught with
    these problems throughout many of the DLLs, and as Windows' is getting
    bigger, so are the problems ... and hackers know it.

    I don;t understand where their heads are at when developing new software and
    not verifying simple return codes and error checking.
