Security: Unpatched and Doing Fine?
It's been a year since the Honeynet project published the results of their study, which concluded that Linux systems can last much longer than Windows systems unpatched on the Internet. I am sure that to some extent this remains true, but I wonder when I see things such as statistics (e.g.,http://www.zone-h.org/en/stats) that claim the highest percentage of attacks are seen on Linux systems and the number two reason they are attacked is because they are unpatched.
