Subject: Re: [Full-disclosure] Microsoft Coding / National Security Risk

Take a team of really really good C/C++ coders with excellent security 
vulnerability knowledge and have them go through the source code for 
windows (starting with the core functionality and internet facing 
functionality maybe).  Find these bugs (including methodical black-box 
testing against the binaries) and fix them.

Allegedly Microsoft has been doing just exactly this for several years.

Ever heard of "Trustworthy Computing?"

Done a lot of good, hasn't it?
