Vulnerable Systems Taken Down for 36+ Hours By Hackers
“An unknown cracker this week compromised several machines belonging to the Debian Project, including servers that house the project's bug-tracking system and security components. Officials from the project said they discovered the intrusion within the last 36 hours and are still working to restore all of the affected machines.”
Debian is cool. It is an open-source operating system that uses the Linux kernel and also includes a number of packages and tools from the GNU Project.
So I have been saying this for years, but now it looks like it is true, as Linux gains more momentum and marketshare, it too will be just as vulnerable to malicious attacks. Not sure what can be done, but I think international law has to be changed to take care of hackers easier.
