I was just discussing VBScript with some people online, and an interesting
question came up.

Namely, should we, the security conscious "geeks" of the world, be designing
"virii" that shore up holes in "normal" user's security? (Things like .vbs,
.js windows scripting associations, password caching, auto-opening EXEs from
IE)

Something that tells you what holes there are in your system and offers to
patch them...
