The case for zero-day testing

Here's a good piece by David Maynor regarding penetration testing and whether or not zero day exploits should be used. I agree with David. With penetration testing, ethical hacking, vulnerability assessments - whatever you want to call them - anything should be fair game. That is if you want a real-world view of what's at risk. Limiting your tests could skew the results and you'll end up with a false sense of security when nothing big turns up.
