Even though Microsoft would love it when all their security problems disappear, they simply won't. Face it, Microsoft's operating systems are the most common, and hence, the main target. Hackers are more sophisticated than ever; everyday new holes are found in Microsoft products!
Strange thing is, Microsoft is usually aware at least 9 out of 10 holes/vulnerabilities reported, or has that just become a common excuse? Granted, the software giant has had its hands full with signing deals with companies to boost their usage in Europe and Asia, but isn't there something they can do about their flaws?
In recent years, Microsoft has done a slightly better job of addressing security issues. Unfortunately, its efforts haven't been good enough. Security problems still persist in Microsoft products and the chances of them being eliminated in the near future are slim. Here's 10 keypoints why the chances are slim:
- Microsoft is a major target
- Windows is an easy target
- The competition isn't big enough
- The company ignored it for too long
- Legacy issues
- Where's the focus?
- Microsoft is usually a step behind
- Users can't be trusted
- Hackers are more sophisticated than ever
- Few consequences
