“Windows Vista’s User Account Control is leading you to make a security choice based on a false sense of trust. Cancel or allow?”

If you’re already using Vista, you’ve probably run into at least one of those annoying “Cancel or Allow?” dialog boxes lampooned in the Mac ad above. Now it turns out that you can’t always trust them. The Symantec Security Response weblog has an article in which they say that in some cases, Vista’s UAC approach “becomes a chicken and egg situation when the user is making a decision based on a false sense of trust.”

The article’s a little bit on the technical side; I’ll translate it into layperson’s terms and post something later today.
