Windows 7 Security questioned

Do you like sensational titles? In a ZDNet post titled “Out of the box, Win 7 less secure than Vista”, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes quotes the CEO of Trend Micro, Raimund Genes. Adrian points out that the CEO of  “a well respected security firm” draws the conclusion that Windows 7 is less secure in its default configuration that Vista. Well, I read Mr. Genes’ comments and since I just set up 5 new Windows 7 PCs I’ll put in my 2 cents. His points are:

1) No warnings of missing anti-virus -Me: NOT TRUE

2) There are no file extension hidden warnings either -Me: TRUE, but the same as XP & Vista

3) When you install anti-virus, warnings that it has not been updated are almost invisible. -Me: Matter of opinion. They are just as visible as XP & Vista.

I’ll let you draw your own conclusions, but this seemed like much ado about nothing. It’s a non-story.
