    Michael Lane Thomas and Brian Martin sound off on Microsoft software
    security, the STPP initiative, and what they could mean to you.
    In the wake of recent worm attacks against its IIS Web server software
    and an Internet security analyst's subsequent recommendation that
    customers seek alternatives, Microsoft this month launched a new
    security initiative, the Strategic Technology Protection Program
    (STPP). Among the program's provisions are free virus-related product
    support, an online Security Tool Kit, and customer outreach via
    Microsoft's account managers and field representatives. Michael Lane
    Thomas and Brian Martin voice their opinions regarding Microsoft
    software security and the STPP initiative.
    ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org
