Fifty-plus years ago Grace Hopper used her experiences with programming the
UNIVAC with FLOW-MATIC (an open-source project) to write her first compiler
paper and the modern era of computing programming began. Some would also say
that things haven't improved much since her day.
Indeed, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) estimated
that in 2001 $59.5 billion annually, about 0.6 percent of the gross domestic
product was being lost because of software bugs. The Sustainable Computing
Consortium (SCC), an academic, gove...Does open source software enhance security?
Interesting article :) http://www.theregister.com/content/55/36033.html
"There are several reasons why open-source software provides for superior computer and network security, but the computing public seems confused about why this is so."
I think he did a good job of summing up the advantages. I'm sure you could list a few more though. :)War doesn't determine who is right, it determines who is left.

...(Assuming backup software is also security software:) How can I back up my data NOT using MS Backup?
XPPRO SP1. I have GB's of data I need to backup. The data changes on a
regular basis, so I need to be able to do incremental backups. I don't want
to use MS Backup since that compressed data to a MS-format, and I've
allready had "can not read, archive damaged" messages on such archives. So,
I need a stable product that enables me to backup the original data without
compressing it into a specific, non recoverable, format. Of course, the
software would need to be able to set archive bits and use these bits in
incremental/differential backups. Does anyb...Sunbelt Software and Malwarebytes Partner to Improve the Security of the Internet

How can i secure my software at customer site, so that it may not get

There are manys to do that by binding the encrypted

work on only one workstation.
