Re: Linux as a target? But is this really the case?

Please, stop with this distinction when it suits you. When penguins talk about the Linux desktop, it is not Linux that users interact with - it is applications which run on Linux + a whole bunch of other things. But these penguins claim it is the Linux desktop.

It is a fact that most vulnerability scans we receive are from compromised Linux hosts. Why? Perhaps it is because people are misled into thinking that because it is on Linux it is safe.
