The article referenced in the OP spoke of web facing applications, not the underlying OS. I'm wondering how secure linux browser versions are. There is a linux Firefox version... perhaps it suffers from the same exploits as the Win and Mac versions.
PC is beginning to work diligently to prevent malware success... Mac is (whether most know it or not) gearing up. Adobe finally woke up to exploits of their web apps... will linux be far behind?
We know the bad guys aren't going to quit. They just migrate to where they have less resistance.
