    URGENT! URGENT! URGENT! FIX OF VULNERABILITIES:
    1) LOCK/UNLOCK function to remove trading capabilities (and fund transfers) effective immediately;
    2) SECURE (and automated) WAY to EXERCISE OPTIONS;
    3) DISPLAY LAST LOGIN TIME/DATE (and possibly IP number);
    4) STOP SENDING eMAIL with STATEMENTS not encrypted and not secured;
    5) ADVICE CUSTOMERS HOW TO PROTECT THEMSELVES from Internet hackers.
     
  2. ahhh the hackers are everywhere, I can't see them, but I know they are there lurking, waiting to get me... watching my every move... waiting to pounce...
