    No. 6: Microsoft security grunt

    Like wearing a big sign that reads "Hack Me"

    Do you flinch when your inbox dings? The people manning secure@microsoft.com
    receive approximately 100,000 dings a year, each one a message that
    something in the Microsoft empire may have gone terribly wrong. Teams of
    Microsoft Security Response Center employees toil 365 days a year to fix the
    kinks in Windows, Internet Explorer, Office and all the behemoth's other
    products. It's tedious work. Each product can have multiple versions in
    multiple languages, and each needs its own repairs (by one estimate,
    Explorer alone has 300 different configurations). Plus, to most hackers,
    crippling Microsoft is the geek equivalent of taking down the Death Star, so
    the assault is relentless. According to the SANS Institute, a security
    research group, Microsoft products are among the top five targets of online
    attack. Meanwhile, faith in Microsoft security is ever-shakier-according to
    one estimate, 30 percent of corporate chief information officers have moved
    away from some Windows platforms in recent years. "Microsoft is between a
    rock and a hard place," says Marcus Sachs, the director of the SANS Internet
    Storm Center. "They have to patch so much software on a case-by-case basis.
    And all in a world that just doesn't have time to wait."




    DFS note: here again we have less-than-flattering stories about Microsoft
    posted on their joint venture website. Proving once again what kind of
    idiots are the cola lusers who claim "MS is evil and corrupt and controls
    the media."

    The Linux loons are going off the deep end.
    They are increasingly LIEing for LIEnix.
