The Ever-Present Enemy: Microsoft's Defences Against Cyber Attack

This article was written for the website of Millhouse Data Solutions and looks at the increasing danger of cyber attack from attackers and what Microsoft is doing to guard against it. The article includes a report from last year of Chinese hackers infiltrating websites using 'Zero Day Vulnerability' attacks. It also raises the question of whether people are being too complacent when loading new software on their PC's, assuming that the new application will have security built in. Finally, the article recommends downloading Microsoft's EMET free security software as an added protection against attack.
