Vista Has Security Flaws Already, LOL

The New York Times is reporting that Microsoft Vista has security flaws. Yes, already. In addition to a flaw that lets users increase their own privileges and override all the new fancy Vista security, there’s a “troubling” flaw in IE7. “The browser flaw is particularly troubling because it potentially means that Web users could become infected with malicious software simply by visiting a booby-trapped site.”

Fantastic. This is why testing is important! The rest of us can just wait and upgrade when it’s safe. Er, hang on, is Windows XP safe yet? Never mind.—MEGHANN MARCO
