In this article, Kurt Seifried discusses various insecurities that are common in operating systems and the applications that accompany them. "There's been a lot of security advisories in the last few weeks, with some pretty major problems. There were even some nasty kernel level problems in several operating systems, allowing users to do all sorts of bad things (like hang any program on the system once it exits, or execute a local denial of service by slamming the ports). Even if you managed to squish every bug you could find, you would still not have a bug free system (because you are not going to find all the bugs). A good example of this is OpenBSD."
