Dan Kaminsky on Microsoft's Security
SecurityFocus published an interview with BlackHat/Defcon speaker Dan Kaminsky. He was guest-hacker at the Microsoft BlueHat event, and met Redmond's engineers and management. His conclusion: My sense is that a combination of respect for SP2 and growing fear of Google (which has an entirely different, and arguably more managable security posture than Microsoft can achieve) has really pushed people towards seeing security in 2005 as stability was in 2000/2001. Do you agree?"
