  Linux fan concedes Microsoft is more secure
Time: 08:33 EST/13:33 GMT | News Source: VNUNet | Posted By: Chris Hedlund

A Linux enthusiast at the RSA Conference in San Francisco has reluctantly concluded that Microsoft produces more secure code than its open source rivals. In an academic study due to be released next month Dr Richard Ford, from the Florida Institute of Technology, and Dr Herbert Thompson, from application security firm Security Innovation, analysed vulnerabilities and patching and were forced to conclude that Windows Server 2003 is more secure than Red Hat Linux. "Vulnerability counts are much higher with Red Hat than with Microsoft," said Dr Ford. "I am a huge Linux fan, and I have a Linux server in my basement. The first time I saw the statistics I thought someone had mucked about with my database."

Let the flame war begin :)

Great news. Linux can always use improvement. Hopefully the right people will take note and make adjustments accordingly.

#3 By tgnb (823 Posts) at 2/17/2005 12:18:46 PM
Yes Windows Server 2003 was a big step in the right direction :)

This is too funny.

Even more funny, it actually hit the front page of slashdot. Usually they hide bad news for Linux.

A Linux fan whose claim to fame is a Linux server in his basement?

Oh, Puhleaze!

#25 has some good points about isolation that work for any OS/environment and are those used everyday to secure sensitive data and systems.

That isn't the point, however. An advocate of *nix - one who is also seasoned and specifically trained, shared the results of many studies. Many are conducted - NCSA, ICSA, MITRE and a bevy of Govt. direct and University studies have been/are conducted, which support the results presented here. The NSA even went so far as to produce a hardened version of Linux - fearing that naive implementations would hazard US companies. There is no surprise here - given the decades the *nix have been studied, built upon and yes, exploited. Now, precious few companies really do it right - even huge well funded companies. We've seen some pretty nutty things and a whole lot more texture in the implementation of security layers than any CIO/CTO would like to admit to - as one outside vendor after another is used to do many things internal staff cannot. People have no idea how bad it is - how badly SSH is fractured, for example...

There is another point that troubles me - the notion that OSS/*nix alone caused MS to produce more secure platforms... Bovine Scatology! W2K3 began development long before the release of W2K and before any Linuces distro had a mm of traction in the market. MS's turn toward security was/is far more sophisticated than that - it was/is driven by an intentional understanding of a changing environment and hundreds of relationships around the world. Yes, of course it responds, but it also plans, and executes according to road-maps, and policies capable of quickly adapting to new, or emerging changes in the environment. One might think that Blackcombe is it...the end...silly...the next OS and the next after that are already being designed. Give all of them credit, MS, OSS, Govt. - they all plan and all work on what is next. Only much less well trained people live from one press article to the next.
