--13 July 2001 Microsoft Speaks Out On Raw Sockets Microsoft's Security
Program Manager, Scott Culp, tells why he believes raw socket support is
useful for effective security in Windows XP and why taking raw sockets out
would not stop DDOS attacks. The interview was presented by the Register
as a rebuttal to claims made by Windows guru Steve Gibson.
[Editor's (Murray) Note: Gibson does not "say necessary and sufficient,"
and as Culp suggests. He merely says useful, that it will so lower the
cost that it will result in a dramatic increase.]
