    "It's unclear exactly how the servers have become infected. Sinegubko
    speculates they belong to careless administrators who allowed their root
    passwords to be sniffed."

    ........which is far from an 'exploit'.

    One thing for sure though, the weren't compromised because someone using
    the computer visited a malicious website that silently installed s/w on
    them.....

    ......which is the actual problem.

    Given the ratio of Windows v Linux users, it makes sense that many more
    Windows boxes would be infected. And--IMO--the vast majority of those
    infections are due to "careless administrators"--end users who really don't
    have much of a clue about PC security.

    No, that is simply not true. There is no such thing as "silently
    installed s/w" on a fully updated Windows 7 running IE8.
    It still requires the recipient to acknowledge/accept or agree to
    something.
    IOW's, it requires the recipients help to get installed.

    Actually no. There are more Linux Web servers (the subject of this thread)
    than Windows ones. And yet there are almost NO Linux viruses/malware in the
    wild. The Linux servers compromised were compromised not by any weakness in
    Linux itself but because, and ONLY because, the attackers managed to
    ascertain the root passwords.
    That is a HUGE difference between obtaining the root passwords and being
    able to infect a Windows OS without having to ascertain the Admin password
    in order to do so.

    That's all fine and dandy, but the whole worlds not running Windows 7
    w/IE8.

    What is the Windows7 share... 10% ? 15 ?

    Of course, especially since there is virtually zero Linux virus/malware
    out there 'in the wild' infecting Linux boxes.

    "Those" careless administrators are not the same as careless
    administrators at a server farm.......home users can't be expected to
    know anyting, but those administering networks for a living are expected
    to know everything, and should...it's there job.
