Winternals and Systernals acquired by MS
Another great step by MS in its quest for more secure products. Winternals and Sysinternals have just been bought by Microsoft. I hope to see things like the excellent PSTOOLS package as part of Windows now. And it's not only about products, but about people too. Mark Russinovich is the guy that discovered that famous Sony rootkit.To MS guys, congratulations again! Enjoy the acquisition (specially the great product called "Protection Manager") and integrate everything that those guys have made into Windows, it will aggregate great value to your product.
