Microsoft Windows

In August 1999, Andrew D. Fernandes found a variable named "Microsoft_NSAKEY" in Windows NT 4 Service Pack 5, establishing that the NSA had a backdoor on Microsoft Windows by that date. Anyone uncomfortable with mass surveillance may wish to avoid Microsoft products (and all such closed source vendors).
