Information Security Magazine

I just starting receiving Information Security Magazine (through I was amused to read the editorial “Broken Windows, Indeed”. The authors of a Windows/Linux security study had hidden the fact that the study was paid for by Microsoft. The editor somehow managed to use that fact as a slam against Linux enthusiasts; I’m still confused how she managed that contortion. She then cited facts from the study that I thought had already been thoroughly debunked.

My confusion dissolved as I continued to flip through the magazine. I saw three full-page ads for Microsoft. I can understand trying not to offend your sponsors, but this was a bit obsequious.
