Symantec peeks under Vista’s hood and boos

Some researchers at security company Symantec have taken a look at an early version of Windows Vista, and they don’t like what they see, according to this News.com report.

They found several security bugs and determined that Vista’s networking technology will be less stable, at least in the short run, than Windows XP’s, the report said.

“Microsoft has removed a large body of tried and tested code and replaced it with freshly written code, complete with new corner cases and defects,” the researchers wrote in the report, scheduled for publication Tuesday. “This may provide for a more stable networking stack in the long term, but stability will suffer in the short term.”

It is necessary to mention here that Symantec is suing Microsoft over Vista. When asked for a response to the researchers’ findings, Microsoft called them premature.
