Report: Vista more secure than OS X and Linux

Report: Vista more secure than OS X and Linux – Filed under: Desktops, Laptops, Media PCs Attention Linux, Vista, and Apple fan boys: put on your gloves… it’s time to rumble! A 6-month vulnerability report issued by Jeff “Security Guy” Jones has caught the eye of Redmond and the ire of places beyond. The report which bases its security assessment upon vulnerabilities found (not actually exploited) claims that Vista is “more secure than OS X and Linux.” In fact, the much maligned XP even crushes the competition using their calculations. Of course, it’s worth noting that Jeff is a member of Microsoft’s Security business unit which will probably sway your opinion as to the integrity of the data. Still, as incomplete as the assessment may be, it certainly appears to be a good showing for Vista considering the vast community of hackers attempting to thwart its security. Of course you know what Billy G’s probably saying right about now? Dy-no-mite JJ!

A diabolical ring of super-thieves has been terrorizing the good people of Tulsa, OK., by conducting elaborate burglaries of stores like Best Buy and Office Depot. In their most recent exploit, the robbers cut two holes in the roof of a Best Buy, rappelled into the store, disabled the alarm system, and then stole more than 40 laptops, a number of plasma TVs and the store's safe. A local crime reporter claims they "leave behind no fingerprints, no witnesses and no surveillance tapes". They also reportedly have super-human strength, psionic powers, and can all fly at nearly supersonic speeds.
