"Last week's "loveletter" virus attack has left Microsoft open to allegations that its software is insecure."
"Some security experts alleged last week that the Windows operating system is inherently flawed and that alternatives, such as Linux, could not have been targetted to such dramatic effect - a theme which is discussed in this week's News in View programme."
"Scott MacKenzie, silicon.com's own webmaster, said: "Linux is less vulnerable to attack because of the nature of the operating system. Recent attacks have been based around macro programmes which do not affect Linux. Most Linux users don't have autonomy which makes it hard for viruses to be replicated."
