What could be worse than being a Microsoft security professional?

Well, not much, as it turns out.

Popular Science magazine released its fanciful bottom-10 list of the Worst
Jobs in Science 2007. And Microsoft security gurus grabbed the number six
spot on the notorious list.

Who has it better than the folks patching bugs and securing software at the
Redmond conglomerate? Well, first off, the answer would be nearly everyone.
Specifically, though, the writers at Popular Science suggest whale feces
researchers have it all over the security professionals. As the magazine
sees it, the people who scoop up whale dung and dig through it for clues
are thanking their lucky stars they're not working at Microsoft.
