Windows Not too long ago, we ran a story informing you of how the auto-elevation feature in Windows 7 is broken in a way that allows malicious programs to silently gain administrative privileges. We wondered if Microsoft was ever going to fix this one before Windows 7 goes final, and even though we're not there yet, a recent article by Mark Russinovich seems to imply pretty strongly that no, Microsoft is not going to fix this.

Really this comes as no surprise. I would almost rate it as a conflict of interest.

MS introduces Livecare in order to help ward off the bad guys. Of course it costs money. Then ooops we left a hole open. After all if they made a secure OS how many software vendors would go under?

Just a big LOL typical MS bs. Let's move on, nothing new here!
