At first the media were crowing that there were no Vista flaws to be patched. Then it was oops there was in fact one critical bug, although it was actually part of the Windows Defender security software. The real issue is, however, is that there WAS a vulnerability in Vista and there will be more.
I can almost hear Vista advocates screaming from the rafters: “For heaven’s sake it was just one tiny Vista flaw out of 20.” To them I say baloney!
How many Vista users are there in the marketplace compared to XP, Win 2000 and Win 98 users? Where are the efforts being focussed by the security companies who discover these flaws? Where are the hackers most likely to direct their exploits? Not Vista with its still tiny user base.
