Highly critical “Ghost” allowing code execution affects most Linux systems
An extremely critical vulnerability affecting most Linux distributions gives attackers the ability to execute malicious code on servers used to deliver e-mail, host webpages, and carry out other vital functions.
The vulnerability in the GNU C Library (glibc) represents a major Internet threat, in some ways comparable to the Heartbleed and Shellshock bugs that came to light last year.
Bit of over-hype on this one
there are not many programs that use the damaged lib
rish3 - Sorry, I wasn't clear.
At least it's not boggy old windows and the reboots, when required, only take 5 or 10 seconds.
I run Linux (Centos 6) and Windows 7 on the same machine, boot times are pretty much identical.
