This is not true. UNIX was not made to be secure. Any UNIX security
history book will tell you that.
Just because you run UNIX does not make you immune to attacks. Linux,
with it's world domination kick, is recruiting more and more windows
admins to it's ranks. You think that these same windows, now linux,
admins are going to do a better job at securing their systems? These
same admins who can not apply patches before the next major worm
apt-get update is easy, so is clicking on windows update...
I think people are doing a disservice by claiming that linux is
something it is not, or more accurately, generalizing all UNIX's to be
<t f l a t @ u n i x n i n j a . u s>
