like GFI has just experienced.

Most of them can be prevented. I would rather focus on that.  If GFI
had of tested the updates from BitDefender before allowing their
clients to utilize the update as part of their software package, then
this most likely would have been prevented.

I am sure that they will be a better company as a result of this error.

The mistake - after the fact - is of course, obvious to GFI, but it
would have been prevented had they been more diligent with testing
their products and the components they utilize.  Therefore, this
aforementioned 'lesson' 'needing learning'.
