As you are probably already aware, I recently shot a number of video interviews with various people involved in Microsoft’s security efforts. One of the interviews I thought was pretty interesting is the chat I had with Christian Seifert. Christian works on the Bing team as a Research Software Engineer. He and the Bing team do some fascinating work to prevent “drive-by downloads” of malware and other nefarious software.
I did of course ask Christian how we eradicate drive-by downloads from the planet. He was a good sport and had a very good answer to that question.
