Windows 7, No Security Barriers, Just Defense in Depth

A game of chess is a simple analogy for software security efforts. Opponents move one at a time, and, as a general rule, one of them is at least a step ahead.

This is valid for products such as Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8, considered at the top of their game in terms of the level of security they deliver, especially after being built with the help of the Security Development Lifecycle.

Given that I knew most of you would be virtually blasted out of your chairs by a “shock and awe” of Windows 7 reviews once the news embargo on the OS was lifted (combined with the fact that I only got my hands on a copy of Build 6801 a couple of days later), I decided to take my time to get to...
