Microsoft had their Blue Hat security conference recently, inviting hackers to take their shots at the Microsoft products. Mostly security researchers letting actual developers and engineers know what they think about the products.
There's a new blog that has some info on the conference. Interesting as one of the first bloggers is a SQL guy. Check out the bluehat blog.
