“Due to an operational oversight within Bit9, we failed to install our own product on a handful of computers within our network,” Chief Executive Patrick Morley wrote on Bit9′s blog. “As a result, a malicious third party was able to illegally gain temporary access to one of our digital code-signing certificates that they then used to illegitimately sign malware.”

What an utter and complete moron.

And companies trust their secrets with these muppets?

Bit9, which has about a 1,000 customers including U.S. government agencies and major defense, energy and financial companies, is one of the leading providers of security technology known as “white listing.”

The official story sounds like a cover for something even more embarassing.
