Bugs & Viruses Recently, the Linux version of UnrealIRCd was discovered to have had a Trojan worm its way into the source code. Even more embarrassing for the developers of Unreal is that the Trojan's been holding open the backdoor in the source code since November of 2009-- not very recently. And, of course, bloggers and press in general are taking the opportunity of another breach in Linux security to point out doomsday devices that don't really exist.

Bloggers saying that this is a Windows 7 problem I think I can safely classify in one of three areas:

1. They want to create more hype than is actually there, thus bringing more attraction to their websites or their person
2. They really don't like Microsoft and/or closed-source
3. They don't know what the heck they're talking about
