Hackers Train Sights on Vista, Forefront


Got a visual of hackers snickering at Microsoft's Windows Vista and security tools and effortlessly hacking away at them from their workstations? Or, maybe of exhausted, caffeine guzzling hackers pounding their fists in frustration at the newly fortressed Vista that has them locked out?

Either way, you've got the picture all wrong.

White-hat hackers, or researchers, aren't dissing Microsoft's security plans, nor are they particularly worried about it cutting into their livelihood, they said in recent interviews with Dark Reading. Instead, they give Microsoft credit for raising the bar with Vista's built-in security features, and they're mostly ambivalent about Microsoft's new Forefront Client Security antivirus and anti-spyware tool.
