Forwarded from: Rob Rosenberger <junkmailat_private> >>Almost one and a half vulnerabilities a week for >>those of you keeping score at home. You mean for all Microsoft products combined, right? How does it compare to ONE product from any large antivirus vendor? C'mon, Bill. How many antivirus patches did you install this year alone? How many times did you plug security holes in McAfee or Norton or Sophos? Do the people around you instinctively click the "download the latest antivirus security patches now" button when CNN announces a new virus? Why do security experts consistently use the plural form of "patch" when they talk about antivirus software? Shallow-thinking security experts chide Microsoft and applaud antivirus vendors for doing exactly the same thing. And Microsoft ONLY does it ~1.5 times per week for all of their products combined! No wonder Bill Gates envies the antivirus industry... Rob - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
