Gartner Group: Finger weg von M$ Passport

Die Gartner Group empfielt allen Kunden, Passport fix fallen zu lassen. Analysten nehmen an, das weitere und schwerwiegendere Sicherheitsluecken zu erwarten sind. Trotz vollmundiger Versprechen wuerde M$ Software kaum sicherer werden. Wenn man die Bugtrq Liste mitliest, mag man dem wohl glauben. Vorschlaege, Passport OpenSource zu machen, werden vom Konzern abgelehnt. "Security by Obscurity" scheint immer noch das primaere Sicherheitskonzept bei MS zu sein.

Russell disputed claims by the researcher who found the flaw in the first place that he had contacted Microsoft before details of the problem were made public. "We've got absolutely no record of it," Russell said.

Microsoft has found itself on the wrong side of Gartner's recommendations in the past. In September 2001, Gartner strongly urged its customers to scrap servers using Microsoft's Internet Information Server (IIS) component Web server software.

As for an open-source review, Russell says it's very unlikely.
