If any Assignor defaults in the performance or fulfillment of any of the terms, conditions, promises, covenants, provisions or warranties on such Assignor's part to be performed or fulfilled under or pursuant to this Master Security Agreement, Laurus may, at its option without waiving its right to enforce this Master Security Agreement according to its terms, immediately or at any time thereafter and without notice to any Assignor, perform or fulfill the same or cause the performance or fulfillment of the same for each Assignor's joint and several account and at each Assignor's joint and several cost and expense, and the cost and expense thereof (including reasonable attorneys' fees) shall be added to the Obligations and shall be payable on demand with interest thereon at the highest rate permitted by law, or, at Laurus' option, debited by Laurus from any other deposit accounts in the name of any Assignor and controlled by Laurus. 7. Each Assignor hereby appoints Laurus, or any other Person whom Laurus may designate as such Assignor's attorney, with power to: (i) execute any security related documentation on such Assignor's behalf and to supply any omitted information and correct 6 patent errors in any documents executed by such Assignor or on such Assignor's behalf; (ii) to file financing statements against such Assignor covering the Collateral (and, in connection with the filing of any such financing statements, describe the Collateral as "all assets and all personal property, whether now owned and/or hereafter acquired" (or any substantially similar variation thereof)); (iii) sign such Assignor's name on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any accounts receivable, drafts against account debtors, schedules and assignments of accounts receivable, notices of assignment, financing statements and other public records, verifications of accounts receivable and notices to or from account debtors; (iv) to do all other things Laurus deems necessary to carry out the terms of Section 1 of this Master Security Agreement; (v) endorse such Assignor's name on any checks, notes, acceptances, money orders, drafts or other forms of payment or security that may come into Laurus' possession; (vi) sign such Assignor's name on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any accounts receivable, drafts against account debtors, schedules and assignments of accounts receivable, notices of assignment, financing statements and other public records, verifications of accounts receivable and notices to or from account debtors; (vii) verify the validity, amount or any other matter relating to any accounts receivable by mail, telephone, telegraph or otherwise with account debtors; (viii) do all other things necessary to carry out this Agreement, any other Document and all other related documents; and (ix) notify the post office authorities to change the address for delivery of such Assignor's mail to an address designated by Laurus, and to receive, open and dispose of all mail addressed to such Assignor.

This power being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable so long as any Obligations remains unpaid. 8. No delay or failure on Laurus' part in exercising any right, privilege or option hereunder shall operate as a waiver of such or of any other right, privilege, remedy or option, and no waiver whatever shall be valid unless in writing, signed by Laurus and then only to the extent therein set forth, and no waiver by Laurus of any default shall operate as a waiver of any other default or of the same default on a future occasion. Laurus' books and records containing entries with respect to the Obligations shall be admissible in evidence in any action or proceeding, shall be binding upon each Assignor for the purpose of establishing the items therein set forth and shall constitute prima facie proof thereof. Laurus shall have the right to enforce any one or more of the remedies available to Laurus, successively, alternately or concurrently. Each Assignor agrees to join with Laurus in executing such documents or other instruments to the extent required by the UCC in form satisfactory to Laurus and in executing such other documents or instruments as may be required or deemed necessary by Laurus for purposes of affecting or continuing Laurus' security interest in the Collateral. 9. The Assignors shall jointly and severally pay all of Laurus' out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including reasonable fees and disbursements of in-house or outside counsel and appraisers, in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of the Documents, and in connection with the prosecution or defense of any action, contest, dispute, suit or proceeding concerning any matter in any way arising out of, related to or connected with any Document. The Assignors shall also jointly and severally pay all of Laurus' reasonable fees, charges, out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including fees and disbursements of counsel and appraisers, in connection with (a) the preparation, execution and delivery of any waiver, any amendment 7 thereto or consent proposed or executed in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Documents, (b) Laurus' obtaining performance of the Obligations under the Documents, including, but not limited to the enforcement or defense of Laurus' security interests, assignments of rights and liens hereunder as valid perfected security interests, (c) any attempt to inspect, verify, protect, collect, sell, liquidate or otherwise dispose of any Collateral, (d) any appraisals or re-appraisals of any property (real or personal) pledged to Laurus by any Assignor as Collateral for, or any other Person as security for, the Obligations hereunder and (e) any consultations in connection with any of the foregoing. The Assignors shall also jointly and severally pay Laurus' customary bank charges for all bank services (including wire transfers) performed or caused to be performed by Laurus for any Assignor at any Assignor's request or in connection with any Assignor's loan account (if any) with Laurus. All such costs and expenses together with all filing, recording and search fees, taxes and interest payable by the Assignors to Laurus shall be payable on demand and shall be secured by the Collateral. If any tax by any nation or government, any state or other political subdivision thereof, and any agency, department or other entity exercising executive, legislative, judicial, regulatory or administrative functions of or pertaining to government (each, a "Governmental Authority") is or may be imposed on or as a result of any transaction between any Assignor, on the one hand, and Laurus on the other hand, which Laurus is or may be required to withhold or pay (including, without limitation, as a result of a breach by any Assignor of Section 6.16 of the Securities Purchase Agreement), the Assignors hereby jointly and severally indemnify and hold Laurus harmless in respect of such taxes, and the Assignors will repay to Laurus the amount of any such taxes which shall be charged to the Assignors' account; and until the Assignors shall furnish Laurus with indemnity therefor (or supply Laurus with evidence satisfactory to it that due provision for the payment thereof has been made), Laurus may hold without interest any balance standing to each Assignor's credit (if any) and Laurus shall retain its liens in any and all Collateral. 10. THIS MASTER SECURITY AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPLICABLE TO CONTRACTS MADE AND PERFORMED IN SUCH STATE, WITHOUT REGARD TO PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAWS. All of the rights, remedies, options, privileges and elections given to Laurus hereunder shall inure to the benefit of Laurus' successors and assigns. The term "Laurus" as herein used shall include Laurus, any parent of Laurus', any of Laurus' subsidiaries and any co-subsidiaries of Laurus' parent, whether now existing or hereafter created or acquired, and all of the terms, conditions, promises, covenants, provisions and warranties of this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of each of the foregoing, and shall bind the representatives, successors and assigns of each Assignor. 11. Each Assignor hereby consents and agrees that the state of federal courts located in the County of New York, State of New York shall have exclusive jurisdiction to hear and determine any claims or disputes between Assignor, on the one hand, and Laurus, on the other hand, pertaining to this Master Security Agreement or to any matter arising out of or related to this Master Security Agreement, provided, that Laurus and each Assignor acknowledges that any appeals from those courts may have to be heard by a court located outside of the County of New York, State of New York, and further provided, that nothing in this Master Security Agreement shall be deemed or operate to preclude Laurus from bringing suit or taking other legal action in any other jurisdiction to collect, the Obligations, to realize on the Collateral or any other security for the Obligations, or to enforce a judgment or other court order in favor of Laurus. Each 8 Assignor expressly submits and consents in advance to such jurisdiction in any action or suit commenced in any such court, and each Assignor hereby waives any objection which it may have based upon lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue or forum non conveniens. Each Assignor hereby waives personal service of the summons, complaint and other process issues in any such action or suit and agrees that service of such summons, complaint and other process may be made by registered or certified mail addressed to such assignor at the address set forth on the signature lines hereto and that service so made shall be deemed completed upon the earlier of such Assignor's actual receipt thereof or three (3) days after deposit in the U.S. mails, proper postage prepaid. The parties desire that their disputes be resolved by a judge applying such applicable laws. Therefore, to achieve the best combination of the benefits of the judicial system and of arbitration, the parties hereto waive all rights to trial by jury in any action, suite, or proceeding brought to resolve any dispute, whether arising in contract, tort, or otherwise between Laurus, and/or any Assignor arising out of, connected with, related or incidental to the relationship established between them in connection with this Master Security Agreement or the transactions related hereto. 12. It is understood and agreed that any person or entity that desires to become an Assignor hereunder, or is required to execute a counterpart of this Master Security Agreement after the date hereof pursuant to the requirements of any Document, shall become an Assignor hereunder by (x) executing a Joinder Agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Laurus, (y) delivering supplements to such exhibits and annexes to such Documents as Laurus shall reasonably request and (z) taking all actions as specified in this Master Security Agreement as would have been taken by such Assignor had it been an original party to this Master Security Agreement, in each case with all documents required above to be delivered to Laurus and with all documents and actions required above to be taken to the reasonable satisfaction of Laurus. 13. All notices from Laurus to any Assignor shall be sufficiently given if mailed or delivered to such Assignor's address set forth below. 14. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, but all of such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same agreement.
