"The director of open source consultancy NetProject,
Eddie Bleasdale, has reiterated his pledge to give £10,000 to
anyone who can infect his Linux computer with a virus.
He made the challenge amidst increasing concerns over the
security of Microsoft's webserver software, which has been hit by a
series of high-profile viruses.
Bleasdale maintains it is impossible to infect a correctly
configured Linux system with a virus, and conversely that it is
impossible to make a system running Windows secure."
