Linux hack attacks on the rise

The story's from ZDNet UK: "Hackers are increasingly targeting Web servers based on the Linux operating system, while the number of successful attacks on Windows systems decreases, according to a new report from UK system integrator Mi2g . The study also found that successful attacks on UK and US government sites have decreased, which may be due to tougher laws and improved security." Supposedly, these are successful attacks Mi2g is recording, although Linux attacks are still significantly lower than Windows attacks.
