Conduct unbecoming an officer

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 1:29 pm

Unless TechRadar’s Patrick Goss report is false (which, for something of this magnitude, is unlikely),  Microsoft’s UK Security Chief has just committed an offense known as “Conduct unbecoming an officer“.

Why? I understand that he is not happy with the publicity the IE flaw is getting. I would if I was in his shoe. It is not easy when someone criticize your work. But it is always important to behave professionally. It is perfectly fine for him to say that “Switching to other browsers is not the solution because they have flaws of their own”. But to let Goss quote him as saying “The net effect of switching [from IE] is that you will end up on less secure browser{}” ({} mine, as I had omitted a comma here in the original article) is way over the top, unprofessional and I do not expect it coming from someone of his stature.
