"In an article on vnunet.com, two executives of anti-virus firms opined that Linux would be the next virus target. Here are excerpts from the article:"Of course we will see more and more attacks on Windows, but Linux will be a target because its use is becoming more widespread," said Raimond Genes, European president for antivirus at Trend Micro. "It is a stable OS, but it's not a secure OS."I will be charitable and call these statements "myths" or "misperceptions" rather than other nastier but perhaps more accurate terms. Let's examine and debunk the myths."
