"Get a grip people. A recent story about the so-called
Chuck Norris botnet implies that it breaks Linux's security. Wrong.
"Windows malware, whether it comes in the form of a Trojan,
virus, or worm, works by exploiting security holes in either the
operating system itself or an application like Adobe Reader or
Internet Explorer. Whatever the bug or the method it uses to arrive
on a Windows PC, the fundamental way it uses to exploit the system
is that Windows itself is inherently insecure."
