Program Names govern admin rights in Vista


'Heuristics" means "we guess the answer": Nice Security , Guys.

"Windows Vista heuristically detects installation programs."

What M$ call "heuristics" the rest of the world calls "guessing."

Vista security depends on guesswork, it would seem. Doesn't M$ realize that when they guess, they are often going to guess wrong? What kind of approach to security is that?
