Yes, but this is like daring people to try to escape from a minimum security prison...

The most secure OS in the world? Either that was an attempt at sarcasm, or someone's been passing the crack pipe around the Inquirer's offices again.

most secure operating system in the world my ass. Microsofts own security team probably cant find any holes themselves so they need someone else to do the work for them. And then hope everyone patches when they encourage people to find security holes
