A Black Eye for Blackboard Over Its Response to Major Security Flaws

Audrey Watters, Hack Education, Sept 19, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I saw this is a couple of places. I am a but hesitant to comment, because it's not like I write lock-down secure software myself. But then again, I don't sell my stuff for hundreds of thousands of dollars. "The Australian university that requested the initial security investigation into Blackboard says that it has been trying to get the LMS to address the issues for months, but with no response. Blackboard refutes those claims." Watters should maybe say 'rebuts', rather than 'refutes', because the LMS company's response is by no means a QED.
