Rodolfo, this was not meant as a voting against Red Hat Linux nor Fedora
Core. I simply shared my personal observations. I do not scan every
system from where I get such SSH login attempts. But when I did ~ 70 -
80 % of the systems were Red Hat Linux. I know that there are certainly
enough other Linux distributions online which lack security updates for
OpenSSH / OpenSSL and other services.

At all, your critics and comments are appreciated Rodolfo :)
