Microsoft OneCare only cares about one...

I found out last week that although Windows Vista will have a snazzy new firewall, by default it will be set to block only incoming traffic unless you decide to pay Microsoft an extra US$50 a year.

If you buy Vista but decide not to subscribe to Microsoft's anti-virus and anti-spyware service, which is called OneCare Live, then you can still get the same outbound firewall protection for free, but you will have to go to the security control panel and manually turn it on.

This is rather odd, is it not? Microsoft OneCare only cares about one…: ZDNet Australia: Blogs: Securify This!
