Linux has become the most breached 24/7 online computing env

Although it's by 'manual hackers' is this of any real concern?

Re: Linux has become the most breached 24/7 online computing env

Generallly any os is only as secure as you make it.
Hell, even windows is secure if you lock it in a room turned off.
lol

On a more serious note, I would like to see their info. Statistics can be scewed very easily.
They say "secure" but don't mention the severity of any breaches. If someone guesses a user password on a linux box, generally the damage will be localized, and negligable.
On a windows system..yikes..

I don't get how they say os X is so much more secure. It is a *bsd after all..just a modified one.

Don't lose any sleep over their "study"
