Ordinarily I'd argue, but its hard to when we find out Microsoft knew

It's hard to imagine anything other than conscious and willful
preservation of known backdoors in Windows as an explanation for
Microsoft's refusal to enable Windows Firewall by default until XP SP2.
Microsoft knew for years, if not from the very start, that all Windows
boxes were by design exposing backdoors on the network, yet they did
nothing to remedy the situation nor alert any customer to the risk.
This smells to me like a whole slew of intentional backdoors, and I
don't smoke anything.
