Thanks.  Yeah, all non-trivial software has vulnerabilities.  The 
important thing is that customers remain aware of that to help mitigate 
risks.

Given that most exploits start with an avoidable user action, it would 
be dangerous for an OS vendor to tell customers they don't have to worry 
about security. ;)
