Security, Hypocrisy and the Kernel Patching Spat


McAfee and Symantec aren't trying to save you from kernel patch protection; they're trying to save their own business models. It's not easy being Microsoft. Not that you should feel sorry for the company, at least not usually. But it is often put in impossible positions, as McAfee and Symantec are doing now.

The two companies are arguing, mostly in European papers in order to influence antitrust policy in the European Union, that security design decisions in Windows Vista are unfair to them and actually weaken system security. Their arguments are, for the most part, transparently false and self-serving. Security, Hypocrisy and the Kernel Patching Spat
