Researchers at the French Ministry of Defense say that OpenOffice is subject to security weaknesses that make it at least as susceptible to computer viruses as the commercial, more widely used, Microsoft Office.

for closed source software. "Hey, there stuff is just as bad as ours but we make you pay for ours, isn't that better?"

No, it isn't. It is a study conducted by a government body to impartially compare threat levels in the two software suites. It is not an advert.

I'd add that the words you're putting into the closed-source vendor's mouth don't convey the study's findings accurately. How about: "their stuff is *worse* than ours..."? Now that could be called a selling-point.
