1. Red Hat is going Enterprise. They need to think in advance and prevent problems for their Corporate Customers. Hence, perhaps they are making all these fixes available in advance. Just because they have fixes doesn't mean that attacks have occured.
2. Red Hat is most popular Distro. Hence, perhaps Linux users can learn using Red Hat but later shift to some other Distros that are more popular at home. This way there is less vulnerability to mainstream attacks.
3. No system is fool proof.
4. From the article it is evident that due to the savings it offers, Linux has gone main stream already in teh Corporate World. This basically, makes it a Target for hacker/infection attacks.
5. When used for enterprise, there are more related software than for normal simple home use. Hence, more bugs etc., are to be expected.
Any other opinions welcome.
