I don't think there is a true lesson here.  

Mistakes happen.  For some that mistake is using GFI.  
For GFI, the mistake is obvious and not a 'lesson' that needed learning.

Of course the news story makes the situation appear much worse than it
really is, although no one can argue the importance of email.  I don't use
GFI products, but the mistake they have made could have been avoided with a
bit more effort in their testing department. 
Especially when they rely on 3rd party products.

GFI has some work to do, and so does their competition.  We can all learn a
lesson here.
