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.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Linux has been ignored. Linux has been laughed at. Now they are fighting us. We are almost their.

The next sign of the coming Linux desktop has just turned up.
