Microsoft: hackers are lazy?

A choice quote:
"We have never had vulnerabilities exploited before the patch was known,"
and:
"It's a myth that hackers find the holes,"
Of course there's some truth to what they say, most will reverse engineer patches and attack legacy systems. But to use the statements above, especially with the words "never" and "myth" is just setting a dangerous precedent..

Man, that's like throwing down the gauntlet. It is ON!

Of course, I know nothing about that stuff, but someone who does is probably saying the same thing right now.
