Submission Windows 7 Security Woes and the M$ RTM Lie.->

twitter writes: "People paying close attention to the Windows 7 build process noticed a subtle trick used to make Windows 7 appear more secure than Vista or XP.

They applied all the patches, called that build the RTM, then said the RTM was unaffected. Then [they] released a press release patting Windows 7 on the back for being more secure, even though at least half those bugs affected it too. You wouldn't notice this unless you had been following the Windows 7 build process pretty closely.

Nothing changes in Windows Land."
