  Liars.  This isn't just incompetence, it's pretty close to libel.

  Do that on CERT, for example, and you'll get stacks of hits for
FreeRADIUS, most of which say things like "FreeRADIUS: no response
from vendor for vulnerability FOO in Mozilla."

  Personally, I interpret their attitude as indicating that FreeRADIUS
is significantly cutting into their sales.  If they have to lie about
it to make their sales, it shows that FreeRADIUS is so much better
than their product that they just can't compete on a technical level.
