What does this have to do with Microsoft Security?

I'll note again - from a point of bugs per line, there's no such thing as

One security bug renders you "unsecure", and as such it's rather doubtful
whether there really is such a thing as "secure".

As an example, let's take a program with an escalation of privilege bug, and
compare it with one that has a remote execution bug.  Which one is more
secure?  Mu.  [Look it up in a good dictionary]
