I don't know about you Rafel, but I know people in your company think XP 
SP2 is full of holes also. =) 


"Ten new security holes in Windows XP Service Pack 2 have been 
discovered, so get ready to insert new patches into your patch 
management schedule. Microsoft recently announced their Security 
Bulletin Advance Notification Program, which gives administrators a 
several days advance notice of upcoming patches, however these new 
security holes were announced by security product maker Finjan 
Software."

Great ten more patches they won't released for Windows XP Gold or 
Windows 2000.... 


I think the founder of Finjan is speaking my language as well... 


Shlomo Touboul, CEO and Founder of Finjan Software, said "Windows XP SP2 
operating system is a continuation of the same Windows XP Operating 
System and Windows Kernel. All Windows versions have been developed with 
requirements for highest backward compatibility and open architecture, 
with maximum productivity and ease of use. In addition, Windows 
applications typically run with administrative permission with full and 
unlimited access to computer resources." 


Sound familiar?
