Interesting perspective from Techdirt on the need for anti-security software. Software that protects against all the security holes in products that are supposed to protect you.

Yankee Group just released a new study that reveals the number of vulnerabilities found in security applications has risen sharply for the third year in a row and now outnumbers those in all Microsoft products.

Yankee Group’s findings confirm a trend that has become increasingly visible in recent months, with vulnerability researchers and attackers both spending more effort on finding cracks in the programs intended to protect systems. As Microsoft has discovered in the past few years, the more companies rely on your products the more likely you are to be attacked.
