The sorry state of security software


Over the years, I've made no secret of my distrust of the Windows security software industry. With the security tools in Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Vista, an alert Windows user is protected from the overwhelming majority of security threats and has to actually participate in any plot to infect his or her PC.

Thatís bad news for the ringleaders of the security software racket, who want to keep you afraid so youíll buy more stuff from them. Ľ The sorry state of security software | Ed Bottís Microsoft Report | ZDNet.com
