>Windows is insecure
>GNU/Linux master race
>OSX has no viruses
Meanwhile in reality... Pic related is an overview of last year's data.
We always new that windows was master race. Look at all the servers that being hacked by Lizard squad. They are all running some Linux distro. Meanwhile Windows based servers are going strong.
Where is "number of things in the wild actually infecting desktop systems"?
Take something like the infamous Heartbleed bug. Yes it was a big deal, but as a desktop Linux user it wouldn't really affect me. I'm not running a server exposed to the public so a vulnerable OpenSSL on my system can't be exploited. Similarly I don't care so much about, say, bugs affecting user disk space quotas.
Also note that the "Linux kernel" includes a fuckton of device drivers and the numbers for Windows probably include some stuff outside the kernel. A more fair comparison would have to include all software running on a sampling of basic systems, including userspace stuff and 3rd party device drivers. After all, a perfectly secure kernel would be worthless if you have to load a buggy ass driver into it to use it on a computer, or run vulnerable software on it.
Discovery of new vulnerabilities or updates that create new ones. By creating new vulnerabilities, they're actually encouraging Windows to be more secure.
>That we know of*
Yeah, that the general public of tech literate pentester can use to breach your Bistro.
Nice mental gymnastics, retard, but you can't sum them like that:
1. That's not how it works
2. They're probably the same across all platforms
3. By that logic, GNU/Linux has that number times the number of bistros
Windows requires digitally signed drivers, so it's not an issue.
Yeah, updates to patch Microsoft programmes like Office, or to update bitdefender, and so on.
According to my chart it goes as follows.
Windows vulnerability 900+
Osx vulnerability 900+
Linux vulnerability 0
I read that on a very trustable website probably the same one op got his data from.
>thinking websites that are hacked always have a fault in the os ...
>windows server ....
what is a windows server ? it's not my fault if the server admin does not upgrade the wordpress site .... this is not the fault of the os;)
thats way more for windows than for linux and osx combined.
>3. By that logic, GNU/Linux has that number times the number of bistros
it said kernel, not gnu/linux distro
Listen up, retard. What I'm trying to say is that the Windows vulnerabilities are mostly the same for all Windows operating systems, so you can't sum them, because there are duplicates.
>it said kernel, not gnu/linux distro
The kernel is used by all of them :^]
