  • Re: Linux

    It may be a little disturbing....but from the vibe I get from anyone who is out to find a backdoor or security problem, they seem to get a huge amount of satisfaction hacking Microsoft OS's.

    Linux seems to be such a rare target, that I don't really worry a whole lot about it. Then again, I could be living a sheltered life. Haha!

    It isn't and you are if you think that simply running Linux means that nobody is ever going to successfully bust root on one of your machines.

      a very sheltered one indeed. Vulnerabilities come out just as frequently for Linux (or more so). Most of them are just as bad. I'd recommend getting on Bugtraq or Full Disclosure stat.

          I could pee myself. Sheltered indeed, they keep you quite safe in those "special" classes it seems.

            Just saw this bumper sticker last week:
            "My other compter is your Linux server"

            Forget 'windows vs Linux' any box can be owned.

              Wow... Five months later, the dead horse is exhumed and flogged some more.

              Defcon must be coming up; there's no other explanation.
