Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Someone with a sense of humor has either registered or hijacked the domain TrustworthyComputing.com, and is using it to refer Web surfers to a vast archive of news stories covering Microsoft's dismal record in, well, trustworthy computing.

We may recall Chairman Gates using the phrase with initial caps (as if preparing to trademark it) in a recent memo ordering the Redmond rank and file to begin taking security seriously.

The domain resolves to 216.218.186.17, the home of Zensoft Games, but it's set to re-direct surfers to the Google archive.

Thanks to billg for bringing this to our attention. You know who you are. ®
