Sharp rise in Web site defacements on Linux servers

From IDG.net: "The number of defacements of Web sites on Linux-based systems recorded by London security consultancy mi2g Ltd. rose significantly in the first half
of 2002, a company spokesman said Tuesday. In the first half of this year it recorded 7,630 defacements of Linux-based Web sites, a figure already greater than the total of 5,736 defacements of
such sites recorded for the whole of 2001, mi2g said in a statement last week."
