Not so safe

But how safe is Windows NT? Microsoft claims that it's a C2-certified system.
True, but only as a stand-alone operating system -- not when it's connected
to a network. If you're a stickler for C2 security, run the test on your NT
server or workstation. You'll get a message that says "network services must
be removed or disabled." Once you've shut down the network and bought a new
pair of sneakers, you have a C2 system.
