Microsoft is serious about security
Want to know why so many people are suspicious of Microsoft's new focus on security? Look no further than this CNET article about how the Internet Explorer “object type” security flaw patch does not take care of the problem. This doesn't even mention the fact that for every patch that needs to be applied, there is testing and then deployment of that patch to a company's entire network. Sometimes the patch actually does its job and even updates rather smoothly. The majority of the time patches are a nightmare. Of course, it's only icing on the cake when you've finally got the patch applied and it still doesn't work!
