Vista more secure? WTF?

Microsoft is making crazy claims again. Vista and XP more secure than other operating systems. Jeff Jones the security strategy director at Microsoft even made up a nice PDF for you to easily read.

“This paper analyzes the vulnerability disclosures and security updates for the first year of Windows Vista and looks at it in the context of its predecessor, Windows XP, along with other modern workstation operating systems Red Hat, Ubuntu and Apple products.

The results of the analysis show that Windows Vista has an improved security vulnerability profile over its predecessor. Analysis of security updates also shows that Microsoft improvements to the security update process and development process have reduced the impact of security updates to Windows administrators significantly compared to its predecessor, Windows XP.”

But I thought Mac didn’t get viruses?

“… from what our tiny brains make of the case, such an argument doesn’t take into account factors like just how many people are trying to exploit a particular platform/vulnerability, or just how damaging each exploit can be.”

I’m sure bloggers will respond shortly.
