Linux as a target? But is this really the case?
"She listed more than two dozen Sysrv exploits that are useful against a range of software suites, including Jboss, Adobe ColdFusion, Atlassian Confluence and Jira, various Apache tools, and Oracle WebLogic."
This paragraph sounds more like: various software frameworks are the target, which happend to be cross-platform.
So, if I manage to infect some framework, which happens to run on top of Linux, did I really infect Linux?
I would say not.
