Microsoft aims to increase time between patches
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 11/19/2004 02:42:00 PM.

Microsoft's director of product security has said that he wants to eliminate patching of Windows altogether, but in the short-term wants to extend the patch cycle to six months.

Microsoft would like extend its Windows patch cycle from once a month to once every six months, but only after the company is confident its customers will remain safe between the updates.

George Stathakopoulos, director of Microsoft product security, told ZDNet UK sister site ZDNet Australia on Wednesday that his long term goal is to create an operating system that will never need patching. But he concedes that because software is so complex this is a virtual impossibility.

However, Stathakopoulos said that as Microsoft continues to rid Windows of bugs and improves its overall resilience, the company is hoping to extend the time between patches from the current monthly update to as much as six months between updates.
