On YouTube, Charges of Security Flaws

The headline at first made me wonder if YouTube had some type of security problem, until I remembered YouTube doesn't really have any security (or privacy), since YouTube has non-exclusive rights to do whatever it wants with all content posted to the site...

The 41-year-old Lockheed Martin engineer had complained to his bosses. He had told his story to government investigators. He had called congressmen.

But when no one seemed to be stepping up to correct what he saw as critical security flaws in a fleet of refurbished Coast Guard patrol boats, De Kort did just about the only thing left he could think of to get action: He made a video and posted it on YouTube.com.
