That has been fixed? Its 6 years old bud, Vista isn't a year old, XP is rock solid in comparison.

nothing is secure in the OS business. If you reversed the situation where apple has a bigger market share,we will be discussing how secure Microsoft over apple. Its just preference for the virus creators on who has the biggest market share

Well when its touted as being lots more secure than XP, and here theyre already finding problems, I'd say maybe Vista isnt all its cracked up to be.

Vista is gonna be targeted more cause its microsoft's most expensive OS to date and they're advertising it to be more secure than the previous OS.If im the hacker i will be like "more secure? lets see about that"

Well, most hackers are guys, and we guys can be rather stubborn and bullish. Like trying to fit that square shape into the triangle cut-out (common', you all know you've done it
).

On Dec. 15, a Russian programmer posted a description of a flaw that makes it possible to increase a user’s privileges on all of the company’s recent operating systems, including Vista. And over the weekend a Silicon Valley computer security firm said it had notified Microsoft that it had also found that flaw, as well as five other vulnerabilities, including one serious error in the software code underlying the company’s new Internet Explorer 7 browser.

DON'T USE IE7
WHAT DOES EVERYONE TELL YOU!!:swearing:

I don't know about most secure......they keep bragging about how many more lines of code Vista has, we all know it's freaking huge. The bigger it is, the more code, the more errors and conflicts can occur and the more holes can be opened. And anything a person can code, another person (hacker) can break....it's been shown time and time again. So whenever they come out and say "This is unhackable", or "This is the most secure to date." I just
and wait for the hackers to accept their challenge (because that's what statements like those are to those people, challenges.) and crack the uncrackable.

I'm sure it will be just as secure as XP, eventually though.........and this is why I don't buy software at launch. Cause it's overpriced and flawed with tons of bugs.
