Privacy, Security, Encryption "Starting today, I plan on posting a monthly vulnerability scorecard for common server and workstation Operating System products. I'm going to keep these scorecards pretty clean of discussion, but you can review my methodology, sources and assumptions." Note that these results speak only of fixed vulnerabilities; the author aims to include information on non-fixed problems and the time it takes to fix problems as well. You should also read this, by the way.

The engineer in me makes me want to say that we should eliminate that component, then. ;-)"


Well, the engineer in me suggests, we'd actually have to replace that component with one that works better because it's better educated and has a higher ability of moral judging, but the psychologist in me want's to give the engineer some sedativa. :-)

I'd like to repeat a thing that someones seem to have forgotten: The article counts the vulnerabilities detected and corrected, so it tells nothing about how secure a system is. The statistics are saying nothing.
