LXer: Malware for Linux Doubled in 2005

Published at LXer:

As more and more people use Linux, the number of malicious threats against it grows as well, on Friday Kaspersky Labs released the results of its database analysis for 2005, and has reported that the number of malware targeting Linux has doubled to 863 pieces compared with 422 in 2004. Windows had over 11,000 in the last of 2005 alone. But an interesting note in the article said to watch Apple as the biggest alternate target to Windows. [So what does this bring the total number of malicious Linux threats to - 20? Compared to 11k for Windows in the last 6 months of 2005, I'll take my chances with GNU/Linux. - dcparris]
