    Microsoft Meets the Hackers

    The random chatter of several hundred Microsoft engineers filled the cavernous executive briefing center recently at the company's sprawling campus outside Seattle.

    Within minutes after their meeting was convened, however, the hall became hushed. Hackers had successfully lured a Windows laptop onto a malicious wireless network.

    "It was just silent," said Stephen Toulouse, a program manager in Microsoft's security unit. "You couldn't hear anybody breathe."

    Nice reading .... I recall an article which talked about MS contracting with some universities to present curriculumes for teaching hacking techniques .... I think both fall to the same category ..,aid,109935,00.asp
