Security Question

Hi all,

I have Debian installed on my home computer (3.0 stable version) I want to use it to remote login in to work, however the people in charge of the remote logins (IT) at my work say that Debian has lots of security holes. I was wondering what security holes Debian may have (especially in comparison to Red Hat) if any. And if any of those cannot be taken care of. They also claimed that Debian isn't stable in comparison to Red Hat, Is Red Hat more stable? From what I have read and understand Debian is very stable and secure (at least it is equivalent in security and stability to Red Hat). Is this true?

I am asking for this information so that I have more backing when I tell the IT people here that Debian as good if not better than Red Hat. I would prefer to use Debian.

Thanks for any help.
