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.

This one stands out

comparing Linux to Windows in terms of security is a joke no matter how much better Windows security has gotten with recent releases.

Other than security through obscurity, can the OP point out why Windows security is a joke compared to linux? I'm at a complete loss.

Sounds like fanboy flamebait which Thom usually avoids.
