Privacy, Security, Encryption "Windows has grown so complicated that it is harder to secure. Well, these images make the point very well. Both images are a complete map of the system calls that occur when a web server serves up a single page of html with a single picture. The same page and picture. A system call is an opportunity to address memory. A hacker investigates each memory access to see if it is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack. The developer must do QA on each of these entry points. The more system calls, the greater potential for vulnerability, the more effort needed to create secure applications."

That's neither here nor there because if this was a "real professional site" you wouldn't have posted a stupid flamebait article like this in the first place.

How is this article flamebait? It only states facts.

Personally I feel that it's not inappropriate to link to an article like this on an OS related website.
