Vista Flaw Found, No Surprise There

The report read like the hundreds I've read about XP: There is a flaw that could let a hacker take complete control of your machine (I'm envious as I've never had complete control of any of my machines).

The "stop the presses" news is that the flaw is within Vista, the supposedly bullet-proof new OS.

The press would have you believe that Microsoft completely messed up, that Vista can't be trusted and that the sky is indeed falling.

One flaw does not a disaster make, and it's too early to tell just how secure Vista will be. If you have any thoughts, send 'em our way at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
