Do you have the link to the rest of the article?
By the way the statement you printed is nothing new nor is it untrue. I am
not an expert in linux but I do know that it is only as secure as you have
the ability and know how to make it so by closing the purts and entry
points. There is no totally safe OS except the one that is on a standalone
machine that is never hooked to a network (internet especially) and rarely
gets new software on it.
