Users still wary of Vista security

Microsoft Corp. stepped into the lion's den this week when it sent some of its top engineers to the Black Hat USA hacker conference here.

Their mission: to convince the toughest security audience in the world that Microsoft's upcoming Windows Vista will be more hacker and malware proof than any other operating system and that the company is committed to security.

The result: a mixed-bordering-on-positive reception from corporate security executives and security researchers. Many of them said they are impressed by Microsoft's stated commitment to security but are withholding judgment until Vista gets into the hands of corporate IT shops later this year.
