That last one is absolutely hilarious considering open source software contains a lot fewer bugs that Microsoft's Windows!

Obviously written by someone in a hurry, his boss probably told him he needed to come up with 9 threats so he made them up.

The Biggest security threat of 2009, as far as I am concerned, Viruses and Botnets due to insecure windows Machines.
