David Ahmad, Bombardier Aerospace
Microsoft's release of Windows Vista marks the arrival of a new era for software security. Fundamental, important changes have gradually occurred, bringing us to a point now where the threat landscape no longer resembles what it was just a few years ago. Vista's release is ideal to consider as a culmination point because it's from this point that software attack strategies will move into new directions. This article examines some of these new directions, as well as the changes related to Vista that most encapsulate the current threat landscape for software security.
