Sorry to bring this even more off topic.

I disagree, we need a stratagy of good security AND strong deterants to virus/malware writers. As long as a computer has some way of inputting and outputting data, there will be some way to abuse that computer. The more ways to input and output data you add, the easier you make it to abuse the computer. You just need to get the balance right between functionality, development time and security. Microsoft seem to have gone more for the functionality than security, eg ActiveX (I can't comment on dev time).
