Windows Server 2003 security questioned

Monday, 5 April 2004, 3:23 PM EST

On 1 April, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates sent a letter to customers, citing a big fall in the number of 'critical' or 'important' security alerts that have been issued since the latest version of its operating system, Windows Server 2003, was released.

Gates claimed that during its first 320 days, Windows Server 2003 was the subject of nine serious alerts -- or an average of one every five weeks. However Windows 2000 Server, the previous version of the software, had 40 serious alerts during its first 320 days.
