Re: Microsoft bugs are like airplane crashes ...
I like your airplane analogy! :) But yes, credit to Microsoft for doing a good job tackling the bugs.  Security programming still hasn't reached enough of a "baked in" status in enough organizations.

Re: Microsoft bugs are like airplane crashes ...
I couldn't agree more. One consistently sounded note -- by security experts -- at this week's RSA conference in San Francisco has been praise for how well Microsoft has cracked down on bugs in its products. If more businesses had a hardcore secure development lifecycle or "trustworthy computing" culture we'd have to deal with a lot fewer of these bugs.

Microsoft bugs are like airplane crashes ... good that they're rarer than we might imagine, but they take more people down with them when they happen.

Still, Microsoft deserves more credit than it usually gets for tightening up software security.
