WIC = grsecurity made in Vista?

Microsoft tried to increase security within its latest OS Vista but on the other side, they continue to leave open flaws due to design errors!
With Vista, Microsoft provides a new security mechanism called WIC (Windows Integrity Control). The purpose of WIC is to protect objects (files, directories, printers, devices) from bad users, virures or even dumb users.
I read this interesting article on SecurityFocus: Introduction to Windows Integrity Control.
To resume: it’s like GRSecurity or SELinux! 😉
