On MS, AV and *ive Updates
John Leyden, June 13 2003
Microsoft's surprise decision this week to buy the antivirus business of
little-known Romanian firm GeCAD Software is part of a plan to get users
"*ed to WindowsUpdate".
"Microsoft has long envied the antivirus industry because they can issue
hundreds of patches per year, per product, without complaint and include
fixes for critical security holes in their products without telling
users about it," he cheekily notes.
