Microsoft Security Chief Transferred

Until recently, Andrew Cushman was the director of the Microsoft Security Response Center. We visited the center once and came away impressed with how the group discovers flaws and hacks, and works around the clock to fix the flaws and attack the hacks.

Cushman has now been replaced by Mike Reavey, who has been closely involved with the Patch Tuesday plan, of which I'm also a fan. Cushman isn't being bounced out on his butt, but is instead getting broader responsibilities for overall security initiatives.
