Microsoft has found and fixed 1,800 bugs in their newest version of Office, 2010. While not all are security related, a few of them are. I’m glad they are taking a much more active approach to security lately. Didn’t Bill Gates say 10 years ago or so that he was starting a new campain to make Windows more secure? This must be the start!
“We found and fixed about 1,800 bugs in Office 2010’s code,” said Gallagher, who last week co-hosted a presentation on Microsoft’s fuzzing efforts at the CanSecWest security conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. “While a large number, it’s important to note that that doesn’t mean we found 1,800 security issues. We also want to fix things that are not security concerns.”
