Microsoft defends security track record

Software designed by humans will always have flaws, says Microsoft, but the company argues that its security record is improving

Microsoft has admitted it does not expect to ever release completely secure, flawless code, but denied that its software was any less secure than any other complex code.

The company was responding to criticism of its security efforts following a recent spate of bugs in its products. In just over a week, Microsoft has had to fix security problems in Passport, Windows 2000, Internet Explorer and Media Player 9. According to Microsoft's top security officer in the UK, however, the incidents are not due to poor code design, but are a sign that "the Trustworthy Computing initiative is working".
