Security expert lauds MS security --pans Apple's.

Former teen hacker who created all manner of problems for Microsoft back in the day now gives kudos to MS for the ways they handle security issues, and criticizes Apple and Adobe.

Cnet interview, no less:

Snippet: (via Lifehacker.com):

"Now when you look at Microsoft today they do more to secure their software than anyone. They're the model for how to do it. They're not perfect; there's room for improvement. But they are definitely doing more than anybody else in the industry, I would say.

Anytime there's been a hacking contest, within a few hours someone's found a new Apple vulnerability. If they were taking it seriously, they wouldn't claim to be more secure than Microsoft because they are very much not."

Another internet myth busted...
