    The security and privacy issues occur if Microsoft is involved as they work with the NSA. Also, no system is 100% perfect. Even if all the precautions are taken, something can and most likely will eventually go wrong.

    No one use windows. Everything should be done in a secure unix-like environment.

    Properly secured Linux or BSD servers should house everything. In addition to having proper customized IP tables for their firewalls, they should also feature a policy manager such as SE Linux or App Armor.
