WMF exploit could be the last wake up call

Rollie Hawk writes "It's starting to look like there won't be a way for Windows to stay ahead of (or at least a few yards behind) the malware writers. There are just too many of them out there. With closed source, there is no way to have as many bright people working on secure code as there are equally bright criminals wanting to break it. Someone had better wake up Bill and the boys at Redmond. All that "Linux stuff" is going to look a lot less geeky when it's the only damned thing left running."
