Short answer: yes he assumes some liability for those httpd windows builds,
but it is probably limited to any negligence on his part in ensuring the
build environment was properly secured.  Going forward if the org wants
to produce such production-quality builds itself it will need to invest in
an audits produced by an Intrusion Detection System on such build hosts,
and we'll need to have an auditable means of controlling 3rd party software
involved in the builds (think maven repo, CPAN, etc).  It's a serious
change from the level of paranoia currently deployed in our existing build
