VISTA

Windows Vista

A friend told me it stands for Viruses, Infections, Spyware Threats and Adware šŸ™‚

Well, seems he was right!

The first viruses for Vista are out and M$ is denying them as usual.

The proof-of-concept viruses use a vulnerability in the new Windows Shell, called Microsoft Shell (MSH). It was codenamed, weirdly, Monad.

EDIT: Microsoft Shell:Monad::GNU Shell:Gonad?

Microsoft’s answer to this challenge was not to fix the problem. Instead, Bill’s engineers have pulled the whole feature from the OS!

Bravo, Bill!!
