Video: Why Vista is a safe bet — for now

Microsoft's latest operating system is as secure as Mac OS X, until it becomes popular, says F-Secure's chief research officer

In the second of a two-part interview, F-Secure's Mikko Hypponen argues that Microsoft Vista attracts little attention from hackers because of its low uptake since its launch in November. However, he says that, in a year's time, the situation may be completely different as businesses start to adopt the operating system in droves. Hypponen also cautions on problems arising from the spiralling adoption of Web 2.0 technologies — but says that IT professionals are powerless to protect their organisations from related attacks.
