GeCad RAV, GIANT and now Sybari Antivirus. Microsoft
swallows smaller anti-malware firms one by one. When the
last one is gone, MS will probably eat the larger ones, too.
Finally all kind of desktop and server security will be
owned by MS and W.H.G. III will rule.

The hidden message behind all of these acquisitions that Microsoft
doesn't want you to know:  Microsoft is admitting their software is
horribly insecure and their solution to the problem is to acquire
re-active based anti-malware software to cleanup the crap that got in
because their software has more holes than the screen in my patio
door.

Further, if Microsoft thinks acquisitions will solve all of their
problems, why don't they acquire a company with programmers that have
some clue about security and it's place in software that is plugged
into a network.

Who are they fooling! (Well, sadly, most people except for those
reading this email.)

Happy patching,
