Software set to remain insecure

According to Dr. Klaus Brunnstein, president of the International Federation for Information Processing, software will always be vulnerable as long as designs are complex, because no one can fully understand what happens deep in the system. The design of the Open Systems Interconnection architectural model, on which the current IT model is based, is also flawed, he said. Speaking at the SEARCC 05 conference, he also advocated involving consumers more in development and making Bill Gates pay for the damage the Windows OS has caused.
