Windows vista the next super duper version of windows is handed over to hackers aka computer security experts to test for bugs and security exploits.
According to this site, “Microsoft made a test version of Vista available to about 3,000 security professionals Thursday as it detailed the steps it has taken to fortify the product against attacks that can compromise bank account numbers and other sensitive information.”
In short Microsoft is asking hackers to crack or hack its own operating system. The main aim is to see how secure is os. However, Joanna Rutkowska, a Polish researcher at Singapore-based Coseinc, showed that it is possible to bypass security measures in Vista that should prevent unsigned code from running â€“ thus os was hacked at Black hat conference in US.
