Windows 7 Security Bug Emerges at Worst Time for Microsoft

When Windows Vista was released, the enterprise and consumers had high hopes for the operating system. Microsoft promised that it would be the most secure operating system it had ever released. Some companies bit the bait and immediately updated their hardware with Windows Vista.

In many cases, those same companies found it to be a mistake. Windows Vista didn't have the kind of security companies required. Almost immediately, outbreaks started occurring as Microsoft scrambled to patch them. Meanwhile, all those companies using Windows XP were delighted that they had opted to stick with Microsoft's old operating system. Over time, Vista's security was improved. But the damage was done.
