No protection from hackers
According to Microsoft Vice President Craig Mundie, it will only be possible to protect yourself effectively against hacker attacks in the next five to ten years. Only then can greater security be guaranteed due to the expansion of the infrastructure.
Only last week Microsoft was again a successful target of DoS attacks, which is not surprising given the large number of MS websites, stressed Mundies. However, due to the unmanageable structure of the Internet, 100% effective protection can be ruled out for the time being. Due to the web server failures last week, the email service Hotmail and the travel service Expedia, among others, could not be reached, but this is partly due to the in-house technicians who caused a malfunction. In order to be better prepared for such things in the future, it is reported that Microsoft has turned to the Internet service provider Akamai Technologies. This should provide backup systems in order to react quickly in the event of failures
