Microsoft U-turns on Vista data

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:44 pm

Microsoft has agreed to provide code so that software companies can provide their own security add-ons to its Vista operating system.

Rivals had previously complained they were locked out from the security system for Vista.

Experts warned the lack of access increased the risk of malicious hacks and viruses.

The u-turn has been welcomed although the timeline for the provision of data is still being hammered out.

Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer said it would deliver it “today, Seattle time, not Rome time”.
