Lenny,

From what little I've read, it was literally hacked within seconds the day it was made available. Now you must understand, this was done in a controlled enviroment and done by a group that works with these software developers. But never-the-less, there was a flaw in the product. The person that performed the hack gets a cash award and then reciprocates by telling the developers how the hack was done. The developers then can work on repairing the product.

Another thing I read is that this release is most advantageous to Vista users and for the new OS 7, which is yet to be released. So I don't know if there is any big hurry yet.

Well, this is my take on this stuff. If hackers want to get into a system bad enough, they'll will find a way. There is no way to permamently stop them. It's like the game I use to see my son play at Chuckie-Cheese. He knock one pop-up head down into its hole and another one would pop-up somewhere else on the machine. It will always be tryng to stay a half step ahead of the bad guys, which I understand are sometimes really a bunch of teenagers, some as young as fourteen.


As for Arpil 1, just another day in retirement.... But I may not turn my computer on and maybe unplug the modem... laugh.gif laugh.gif
