Face It: Linux Is Insecure
Opinion: Just because Linux is safer, don't think for a second that means it's perfectly safe. Nothing is. (Linux-Watch)Linux is insecure. Open source is insecure. Windows is insecure. All software is insecure. Deal with it. People keep having this delusion that security is a product. That, if you just buy some magic box, youll have a program or an operating system thats as secure as Fort Knox. It doesnt work that way. Security is a process, not a product.
Some systems are more secure than others. Linux, as anyone who pays any attention to security news knows, is a lot more secure than Windows. If we were talking cars, Linux would be a Volvo S80 and Windows would be a Ford "Hit here to blow up" Pinto.
