They'd blame the spammers. Having said that:

    "The cost of these steps could reduce our operating margins. Despite 
    these efforts, actual or perceived security vulnerabilities in our
    products could lead some customers to seek to return products, to reduce
    or delay future purchases, or to use competing products. Customers may 
    also increase their expenditures on protecting their existing computer 
    systems from attack, which could delay adoption of new technologies. Any 
    of these actions by customers could adversely affect our revenue. In 
    addition, actual or perceived vulnerabilities may lead to claims against 
    us. While our license agreements typically contain provisions that 
    eliminate or limit our exposure to such liability, there is no assurance 
    these provisions will be held effective under applicable laws and 
    judicial decisions."

Ah, from the horse's mouth: Microsoft just might be held legally responsible
for selling software that is insecure.
