Paying for Patches?!

ISS slammed for ‘selling’ security patches – ZDNet UK News
This story over at ZDnet is covering ISS’s insistance that only customers with maintenance contracts will get patches for the vulnerability in their products caused by the witty worm…
I really hope this isn’t a continuing theme amoungst software vendors as the only result will be an increasing number of machines that will never be patched against malicious code.
Also I’ve got to say that I’m really suprised to see this stance from a vendor of security products, as you would think that they of all people would understand the consequences of leaving people with faulty firewall software!
