LXer: On Bugs, Viruses, Malware and Linux

Published at LXer:

Is security a sword of Damocles hanging over Linux, just waiting for its popularity to reach critical mass? That's one persistent argument in the Linux vs. Windows debates, but it's just wrong, according to those who know Linux well.

"If the anti-malware industry has anything to offer GNU/Linux," challenges blogger Robert Pogson, "let them step up."
