Oh, the irony! – cont’d

Article from The Guardian.

“Graham Cluley of Sophos, a leading UK-based security vendor, confirmed by email that Sophos “is experiencing no problems with PatchGuard for our anti-virus software”. He added: “Sophos believes that PatchGuard is a positive step by Microsoft to improve security on Vista, and is not in itself anti-competitive provided that Microsoft delivers on its commitment to provide the same level of kernel support and integration to third-party security vendors as it does to its own security product team.”

Buy Sophos software!

  1. Avast and Trend don’t have any problems either.
    Wonder what it is really that Symantec and McAfee have problems with?
    Why do they really need access to the core if the others do not?
    I am very suspicious of their intentions.

  2. Good point.

    I’m no Microsoft fan but when they do the right thing they should be congratulated – you gotta wonder about security firms that are basically saying “It’s too hard”. Well guess what guys – that’s what it’s supposed to be!
