Digital signing does nothing to stop Vista hackers - 5/10/2007

Unfortunately, driver signing, as it is currently implemented by Microsoft, appears to be creating more obstacles for developers and customers than it is for hackers. Microsoft cannot expect widespread adoption of its new operating system if users cannot depend on the availability of drivers to support the most popular hardware configurations. Nor will customers feel safe with Vista when experts continue to report how easy it is to poke holes in Microsoft's new defenses. Users need to demand that Microsoft simply do its job better before releasing a new operating system, providing a stronger defense against hackers without placing undue burdens on developers.
