Although I would agree that most flavors of *nix are much less prone to
exploits then Windoze, I would like to point out that security loopholes
for Linux programs do exist and anyone stupid enough to leave a
configuration as is out of the box could have a problem.

That said, when they announced the OpenSSH exploits (or was it OpenSSL)
I never heard of anything coming of it.  Perhaps because the *nix
community is generally smart enough to subscribe to security
announcement lists and never get hit.  Although the GNU site was hacked
a couple months ago so I guess nobody's immune.
