Author: JT Smith

From ZDNet: "Eric Chien, chief researcher for Europe at security firm Symantec Response, said that Linux is just as vulnerable as Windows, and that the flaws exploited by Code Red and Nimda viruses were similar to bugs that the Ramen and Lion worms exploited in Linux systems. "Software will always have bugs. All it takes is a single flaw for a worm to gain access to the system. The key is how administrators and vendors respond to those bugs.""
