Windows Vista accepts incorrect passwords

,----[ Quote ]
| Windows will (at least on my system) accept it, even though the password is
| incorrect. i’ve verified this on my setup at least five times. This “feature”
| is probably “a convenience to the user”, but it seems odd that they would add
| such a convenience, and then continually bombard the user with
| inconvenient “are you sure YOU clicked that .exe file?” dialogs.

| hacking challenge Friday at the CanSecWest conference.

| date. However, recent research conducted with statistics from over 1.4
| million computers within the ThreatFire community has shown that Windows
| Vista is more susceptible to malware than the eight year old Windows 2000
| operating system, and only 37 per cent more secure than Windows XP," said
| Simon Clausen, chief exec at PC Tools.

Microsoft Blames Users for Vista Infections

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft wasn't going to let that comment go down undisputed and now claims
| that users are responsible for executing malicious code on their machines —
| at least according to TechNet blogger and Microsoft evangelist Michael Kleef,
| who insists that the number of infections found by PC Tools is an indication
| of poor user behavior. Read all about it at ZDNet.co.uk.
