Five ways to get a security headache

Information Week says you don’t have to wait for Vista to get its enhanced security – you can do it all now with Windows XP.

That tells me two things:

1) Vista’s security enhancements can’t be particularly mindblowing if you can replicate most of the behaviour now; and

2) Before you get started, you should ask yourself whether you can make the process less of a hassle than a top-shelf security guy could.

I’m not holding my breath.


Your best bet would probably be to attend the BlackHat get-together, and watch as Microsoft shows you how it is all done. I just hope the power doesn’t go out.
