  1. Newport Beach, CA, March 12th, 2003 : PivX Solutions, a leader in Network Security is pleased to announce the release of 2 thronged vulnerability advisories discovered by Mike Kristovich, a security researcher for PivX Solutions.

    Intuit, the e-Tax filing leader who's revenue of $558.1 million increased 17 percent from the second-quarter 2002 was glad to work with PivX on this matter, & works towards a fix in their newest version of TurboTax to be released on an undisclosed date. The maker of TaxCut was less cooperative. "H&R Block with over 2.3 million users to protect could not find the time to respond to PivX's multitude of contact attempts via phone & email." says Geoff Shively.
