Windows Last week, security vendor Sophos published a blog post in which it said that Windows 7 was vulnerable to 8 our of 10 of the most common viruses. Microsoft has responded to these test results, which are a classic case of "scare 'm and they'll fall in line".

Yeah. I get the feeling that it was these Trojans that Sophos tested with. The OS doesn't really do much against those except via the Malicious Software Removal Tool, that only targets the absolutely most 'popular' malware.

It is pretty much impossible to keep trojan programs out because they don't violate the security model of the OS.
