Macs and the Pwn2Own contest
Well, I think the results of the first day of the Pwn2Own contest shows what most of us already knew. Microsoft is doing a much better job onÂ securing their software than Apple. What makes me sad is that because of its past and its image among geeks (like it its The Borg) Microsoft is not being taken so seriously as it should be by security professionals, giving space to companies like to rely only on the bad past of its competitor to avois improving its own products security. Almost all software companies have a lot of things to learn from MS Trustworthy Computing initiative. Ok, we can still discuss aboutÂ which product is better, but we need to make all other companies to take a look at what Microsoft has been doing about security and to learn from it.
