Vista Will Get Malware

Ryan Naraine has an article about Mark Russinovich admitting that Vista will get malware. I suppose the news worthy portion of this statement is that Mark is admitting it, which seems to be a change in direction. There have already been reports of spyware working for Vista, so this is not too surprising. All the viruses and malware I've test run on Vista work without trouble.


Mark has been a great help in the fight against malware so its nice to see someone who knows what they are talking about chime in.

I think the only thing standing in the way of vista getting malware is people not buying it and so there not being any vistas running to infect :)

So far the microsft vista sales aren't doing to well, ex. Dell re-offering XP due to high demand and lack of vista demand.

The nice thing is that vista will be a whole new environment to explore.
