Privacy, Security, Encryption It's not just Symantec that wants to call foul on Microsoft; McAfee got in on the action today with a full-page ad in the print edition of the Financial Times. The ad accuses Microsoft of engaging in dangerous practices that are creating 'inherent weaknesses' in Windows Vista. And by 'inherent weaknesses', McAfee means limitations on what their own products can do.
