Security Vulnerability = Sexy Bug

Watching Billy Hoffman's JSConf talk, "Javascript, the Evil Parts". A favorite point he makes: security flaws in software are unintended software behavior, that is, they are bugs, albeit sexy because they relate to security. When a developer says security is not their problem, they are declaring that they are not responsible for bugs that happen to affect security. Fail.
