Say it aint so!

A UK BASED security firm claimed today that digital attacks on Web sites using the Linux operating system have reached an all-time high over the last three months.

British firm mi2g claimed that Windows based servers were more resilient from March to May for corporate and government systems.

It issued figures saying that the reason for the vulnerabilities was down to improperly configured systems, lack of a "trustworthy" computing initiative, and corporations choosing Linux because of its cost but not costing in technical support overheads.

In May this year, 19,208 successful breaches were recorded against Linux based systems, compared to 3,801 against MS Windows based systems, it claimed. Both the USA and the UK were most attacked during the three months which included the Iraq war.

Impossible, they must have had the numbers swapped.
