Heh, yeah- those two major failures certainly overshadow the hundreds of issues Win has. :)

Can you name those hundreds of issues discovered on Windows stack for, say, 2014? I'm on IIS and I really want to know if I'm missing something.

MS had it's fair share of security flaws in the past but give them credit for their current state. You sound like people still talking about BSODs, while it's certainly a thing in the past.

I get BSODs all the time on Windows 8.1 because of my video card drivers.

Here is the list of security advisories for all Microsoft products and they even list some non-Microsoft products like Adobe Flash, etc:

I don't know where to get the multitude of security advisories for Unix systems listed all in one spot, but here are some links for popular distros:

- https://www.debian.org/security/

- http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/

- https://access.redhat.com/security/updates/active/

- http://www.slackware.com/security/list.php?l=slackware-secur...

Anyone know where to go in order to get the Unix vulns all in one list?

I was under the impression that windows server is pretty stable/secure these days.

Do two hugely impactful nix-centric security bugs overshadow the hundreds of minor ones found in Microsoft products?

Yes, certainly.
