OnBusiness: "Microsoft steps up viruses fight

October 9, 2003

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has outlined new initiatives in the company's security battle against computer hackers, following criticism after a series of viruses designed to attack flaws in the company's software.

At a Microsoft conference in New Orleans, Ballmer announced a range of new programmes and technology investments to be introduced in the coming months."

About time. This layered approach is, perhaps, the only way to go at this point. I use it. Everyone who has been around a while uses it. I can only hope that Longhorn will cut down on the number of layers needed. Notice I didn't say 'eliminate'. I don't think that any OS written by man can be bug- or exploitable feature-free. Let's say that the best we can do is hope that the ways of protecting your system will become easier.
