Sunbeltblog on how Microsoft can make a Bloggers day…



I’ve been reading the sunbeltblog lately and they have a post related to this latest virus outbreak which is right to the point. Most corporate desktops run Windows 2000 as opposed to Windows XP and Microsoft has been less than “charming” in their response to the issue that many businesses have had with Zotob.



In their post, they make mention of Microsofts somewhat compassion-less statement that at this point it is a low threat and is not affecting any other platforms than Windows 2000. He is right on the mark, given the impact that this is having I really don’t feel as though they’re reacting as though this is a problem.

In an earlier post today, I talked about the places that they have dropped the ball in responding to this. Yes, they patched it, very good, but there are still some fundamental problems with Microsoft’s approach to security. I looked at the Microsoft blogs, the most precient entry I could find was a “look inside the situation room” which basically started out along the lines that “when there is a situation affecting customers we bring the right people into the room” (paraphrased…). It’s disappointing to see better coverage of a worm affecting Microsoft Windows coming from sources OUTSIDE Microsoft. After all, Microsoft knows their code better than anyone (hopefully) and should be in the best position to analyze what’s happening and INFORM in an attempt to keep their customers armed with the information they need.
