Some people feel that my last post means that that Vista is perfect from a security standpoint and will not have any hacker problems. Please re-read the post. I said is that Microsoft has worked hard to eradicate most of the current, popular exploitation methods. This doesn’t mean its hacker proof. Why? Because people will develop new methods. That what security researchers will do. Unfortunately for researchers Microsoft has hired a ton of talented security people that are also trying to come up with new methods so they can plug them before anyone knows about them. To my knowledge not many other vendors, including Apple, are doing anything like this.
What does this mean? In the end not much, every vendor is still locked in the same arms race with hackers they always were.
