 | GCC yes, but what about Visual Studio? The LLVM which ships with XCode?
 | Javac?
 | Those are much jucier targets than say, Debian's GCC. If I worked at the
 | NSA, I'd make backdooring Visual Studio my 20% project.
 | If anybody with Snowden cache access who is reading this could do me a
 | quick favor and grep for 'compiler,' and then publish the output, I'd
 | really appreciate it.

History says that Microsoft's problems with BSOD were dominated
by third party device drivers -- supposedly 85% of all XP BSODs.
And they are all are blobs.
