IT bugs out over IIS security

Author: JT Smith

According to this eWEEK article (at Yahoo), IT departments are sick and tired of dealing with the never-ending flow of serious security bugs in Microsoft's enterprise software. To quote one admin: "Maintaining IIS servers is a cumbersome, tedious process. Any time you bring a new server online, you have to apply 40 or 50 patches." So, what are these mad as hell and not going to take it anymore admins planning to do about this? For the sake of convenience and the departmental bottom line, most plan on waiting around for yet another patch from the Redmond mothership.
