I will never forget being in Redmond when Microsoft announced PowerShell to the world. PowerShell, which was at that time called Monad, was to be a new administrative tool for Windows. During the question-and-answer portion of the event, I told the panel that in spite of its potential as a system’s management tool, Monad sounded like a malware author’s dream come true. I then went on to ask what Microsoft was doing to keep Monad from being exploited. I have to admit that I can’t really remember the answer that I received, aside from the fact that it contained vague references to built-in security.
