Chuckle. They must run a lot of GNU/Linux. There’s no way that other OS can be secure with such cuts because of the layers of cruft that M$ imposes. With GNU/Linux otoh, one guy can control an indefinite number of machines with SSH and package managers. Even in my home, I activate one script and it updates all the machines on my LAN in a few seconds.
“What we’re in the process of doing – not fast enough – is reducing our system administrators by about 90 percent”
Of course, my view of the cuts is that they are multiplying their vulnerability by ten because one guy now will have ten times as much stuff to look at… 😉 This could be the NSA shooting themselves in the foot.
