    These stats are pointless unless we also know the TOTAL number of servers. We know Linux is HUGE on webservers, which is what these hacks are 'defacing'. What kind of bullshit stats only list the defacements and not the total amount of servers in each category? For all we know 219,419 may be 50% of all windows web servers while 1,126,987 may be 10% of all Linux webservers. Try harder yogi_berra...

    Also doesn't include parked domains where a single intrusion may affect a few hundred sites.

    Linux is pretty secure. The problem is that people tend to stick crap written in PHP on top and expect it not to be hacked to death.

    The bullshit here, is that you refuse to admit that there are security problems. Thanks for proving the earlier point about heresy.

    Cool Disaster waiting to happen

    This particular part of the WineHQ website has been a disaster for a long time now. The maximum allowable password size and
    specific password characters allowed are not specified when you enter a new/first password. The limits turn out to be
    ridiculously weak and there is no feedback if your password doesn't work (fit the 'unspecified limitations'). Bugzilla is
    just a weak bit of FOSS (to be internet facing) - open to all sorts of vulnerabilities I would bet... Perhaps RMS should bump
    it up on his 'most wanted list' (above Google Earth for sure) :-)
