Amiga OS is wide open in every security aspect. Windows XP can be hacked using unpatched exploits while Amiga OS can't even be patched.

Multiuser does not mean multiple people using one computer, it means multiple layers of security, where different "users" (owners of processes) have different access to resources such as memory, storage and everything. Without this in place, a system should not really be exposed to Internet.
Care to explain why this is required for security?
