Microsoft just says no to hostile code

— 2:28 AM on April 11, 2001

Microsoft has problems keeping its software secure? You don't say. C|Net is reporting that Redmond has declared war on hostile code.

Through a series of moves--including "spot the bug" e-mails, classes on writing secure code, and messages from higher-ups in the company supporting secure code--Microsoft hopes to focus its programmers on delivering bug-free and reliable code.

"We are imbuing security into the company's culture, we really are," he said.

I think they should have recruited Nancy to deliver the message.
