"The leak could potentially put more Windows users at risk because it opens the door to more people finding vulnerabilities in Microsoft's code — and using them in malicious ways..."

If they hadn't left the holes in the first place then it wouldn't be an issue. Linux is open source and they don't seem to have a problem.

Well there is the fact that 90% of the world uses microsoft OS's... so if someone is going to do something malicious, there not going after Linux or mac (even though they are more secure for the most part)...Actually this could turn out to be a good thing, there will be exploits found, but that will lead to patches and eventually a more secure OS...and later editions will benifit...
