I hope that Congress will soon enact strong new laws against all that vermine.

Further down the front page of silicon.com it seems that it's a hoax. Plus, this site only gives two points. And apache is still far more common than ms (see netcraft.com) so their point system doesn't make sense.

I strongly disagree with any of these tactics and I think that those miserable parasites ought to get a life!

Yeap, let's hope it is -- a hoax, just got an email with the same thing from Zone Labs.

I think they are looking more at the OS, NOT at the server software. Linux and BSD are typically a bit harder to hack- well, maybe a bit more secure!- than MS OS. I think that is the point the scoirinbg system is making, not the popularity of the software in question...
