Y’know the annoying message you get whenever Windows XP crashes? The message that asks to send Microsoft the crashed software to check things out? Something like the image below?
Yes, due to some stupidity and lack of attention, hackers tend to crash the system with their drafted malicious code and send it to Microsoft…
I just like how Microsoft’s senior security architects, Rocky Heckman, explained two reasons why the top-ten hacking methods haven’t changed for the last six years in this quote:
One, it tells me that the bad guys go with what they know, and two, it says the developers aren’t listening
It’s funny how they try their malicious attacks on Microsoft that they get 7000~9000 attacks a second xD … And that’s in average too!
You should read the source, it’s really interesting.
