Privacy, Security, Encryption "The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team released its year-end summary of computer vulnerabilities. While Windows is regarded as the most insecure operating system, the US-CERT found four times as many vulnerabilities specifically related to Unix and Linux. Of 5198 reported flaws, 812 were for the Windows, 2328 for Unix and Linux, and 2058 more affected more than one operating system. Notably missing from the list of Windows vulnerabilities is the recently discovered Windows Metafile issue. No vulnerabilities were listed for Apple's Mac OS X, however several had been disclosed during the year. Also, since OS X is based on Unix, it is vulnerable to some of the flaws associated with its core operating system." Note: The link is fixed. I have no idea what happened there, sorry guys!

Hummm, what about this new cert FIN-06-004-01

(Another BIG ole windows hole)

I mean you go to the US-CERT site and almost everything you see on there is Windows, Windows, Windows.

As always you have Windows guys trying to talk Unix security. But when you look closer the truth is I have NEVER had to run scared, double check my virusscan or any of those things when using Linux/Unix/Mac OS

Sorry.
