Getting good information
...so we're in the car driving to Los Angeles and the radio DJ talks about an upcoming story on radio
"A problem in Microsoft Windows? Nahhhhhhhh" she says.......
The chatter on SBS listserves today is one of disappointment. This security issue points out the problem we have down here in SBSland. The "test" problem. For large firms they have the resources to test, to have matching images on the desktops, to try to understand the risk for their firm. Down here we rely on the guidance we get from official sources.
So the gang is now stratching their heads as to how we went from "DEP" works to one where only "Hardware DEP" works. They are seeing that antivirus and spyware bloggers first brought up the issue that software DEP wasn't working [especially on real world boxes].
Getting good info is hard....and unfortunately this event just pointed out how hard.
