Vista Analog Hole

George Ou over at ZDNet a past speaker at ITEXPO has some great analysis of a Vista security hole that is basically a backdoor left open by the new operating system’s ability to recognize spoken commands. Microsoft is downplaying the need to worry about this flaw but Ou thinks the company should make some changes to make the OS safer.
 
Although a hacker would have to be sophisticated to exploit this hole there does seem to be a real possibility that a hacker could take control of your computer by using this exploit. If you happen to hear sound coming out of your computer – something similar to a voice speaking – you may just have a problem.
