When you get popped through an IE6 'sploit, Microsoft ain't your problem, buddy...

On this week's show we take a look at reports that Google is set to banish Microsoft Windows from its operating system over security concerns.

The tech giant says running Windows is just too risky. Google was, after all, famously owned in the Aurora incident through holes in Internet Explorer 6.

But our guest this week, Neohapsis CTO Greg Shipley, says getting owned by a hole in a nine year old browser is probably a sign that your desktop management is the problem, not the platform you've chosen.

Also this week, Marcus Ranum joins us to talk about what he describes ad the non-existent meme that is "Cyberwar". That's this week's sponsor interview.

Adam Boileau, as always, checks in to discuss the week's news.
