security watch

Since many of us don't know what is on the computers that we plug our drives into, it is good to know what kind of exploits are out there. Most of you have probably heard of the recent WMF vulnerability. Some of you may know that Microsoft only patched all OSs after Windows 2000. Even less of you know that the vulnerability was a backdoor created by Microsoft. Don't believe me? It was discovered by Steve Gibson, a known security pro. I have a story on it at my blog, with a link to the transcript of the "Security Now" podcast where Mr. Gibson broke the news.

so

are you saying that what he found couldn't be true? I would think that hackers would jump on anything that discredits Microsoft.
