All of these security holes exist because of one thing: Microsoft Windows
The proprietary code flaws in Windows that create these security holes have been known for at least a decade, but still, almost every business, every government agency, every branch of the military, and the vast majority of individual Americans, continue to use this phenomenally inferior operating system for their day-to-day work.

They'll have their own operating system, and "internet" or network structure, totally off the grid from ours i'm sure.
And don't put your NUCLEAR SUBS on Internet with Windows

I know a one of the only hackers alive that ever hacked mozilla. If this is true about windows being on Navy Government Computers then its no wonder you have so many leaks.
Do you have any idea what this means as far as a breach of national security but alone what someone could do to get a security clearance by knowing how to manuiplate windows source code?
