Mundie announced November 13, 2002 "that in response to the threat of terrorist cyberattacks, Microsoft would deploy security fixes to its installed base of hundreds of millions of computers worldwide in the coming year -- even if those fixes break applications in use by customers." He also said that, "We're going to tell people that even if it means we're going to break some of your apps, we're going to make these things more secure. You're just going to have to go back and fix it." Mundie went on to say that increased spending on development and maintenance is necessary to increase security. He also indicated that Microsoft's business model, the push to increase revenue with sales of new software with new features, might have created a situation in which less than secure code was produced. Mundie said that every Microsoft project has a security function portion.
