Microsoft invites hackers to exploit Windows Vista

Posted on Saturday, August 05 2006 @ 10:31:02 CEST by

Bit Tech reports Microsoft has invited hackers to attempt to exploit Windows Vista.
Microsoft has consistently received criticism at the lack of resources they put into protecting their products. This attempt is aimed to rectify all that; people like Jon Callas, chief technology officer at PGP Corp, describing the stunt like this:

"They're going directly to the bear in the bear's lair. They are going to people who don't like them, say nasty things and have the incentive to find the things that are wrong."

The suggestion is circling that that those who don’t like Microsoft would thus ignore this invitation to help them. Or worse still, hackers invited to the event, may research all the most notable security vulnerabilities and wait until the product is fully released before subsequently releasing their own viruses and who knows what other nasties.
