MS Patches or Whale faeces?

Popular Science magazine lists the absolute worst jobs in science; the ranking for Microsoft’s Security Response Center (MSRC) proves that security isn’t a glamor industry 🙂

“The MSRC ranked near the middle as the sixth-worst job in this year’s list.. ‘We did rate the Microsoft security researcher as less-bad than the people who prepare the carcasses for dissection in biology laboratories,’ Moyer said. Moyer didn’t have to think long when asked whether he’d rather have the number 10-ranked whale research job. ‘Whale feces or working at Microsoft? I would probably be the whale feces researcher,’ he said. ‘Salt air and whale flatulence; what could go wrong?'” [2]

I think I might have to find a bucket of whale faeces as an alternative to next Patch Tuesday 😉
