Microsoft partner: Vista less secure than XP

"Security company Kaspersky claims that Vista's User Account Control (UAC), the system of user privileges that can be used to restrict users' administrative rights, will be so annoying that users will disable it.

Natalya Kaspersky, the company's chief executive, said that without UAC, Vista will be less secure than Windows XP SP2. "Windows Vista with UAC disabled will be less secure than XP SP2," said Kaspersky, speaking to ZDNet UK at the CeBIT 2007 show in Hanover. "There's a question mark if Vista security has improved, or has really dropped down."

Kaspersky provides one of the scanning engines in ForeFront, Microsoft's business security product."
