Linux Zombies Poised for DDoS Attacks?

    "But in the podcast I did with Barrett yesterday he raises the specter of a
    new generation of zombies, Linux zombies, being used to launch attacks
    against targets. He says in a recent battle he had to defend a site that
    was under attack from a Japanese hacker who had been hired by someone to
    take out their competitor, Barrett¢s client."

    "The hacker used a common mis-configuration in PHP scripts to take over
    Linux machines and use them for his army of zombies. What is scary about
    this is that these machines are typically web servers on broadband
    connections, unlike the usual collection of PCs on college campuses that
    are part of a bot-herd. So they are much more deadly, especially when
    combined into a single force. The PHP script is easily searchable on
    Google so the hacker automated his harvesting activity by having each
    infected machine search for more machines to infect using Google results to
    seed the search. "

    Let the denial and discrediting begin.

    Doh! I assume you are referring to systems that have fixes out
    there already??

    Its posts like these from mis-informed uneducated micoshat
    funded windopes that make me never want to buy windopes again
    and use the much more secure Linux platform instead.
    Starting with liveCDs and source code, the options are far
    more secure solution that proprietory windope code that has
    hidden flaws and undocumented features expoited by hackers and
    spyware writers.
    I'd rather try out one of the livecds first and since its
    free its a lot better than wasting your time and money on
    an insecure windoze platform. So switch now to GNU/Linux

    Watch them whine and cry.

    This wasn't caused by any flaw in Linux. It was caused by
    mis-configuration in PHP scripts.

    PHP just may end up on the short list of apps to avoid
    like the PLAGUE due to persistent pernicious sercurity issues
    like sendmail and bind. A free market can route around excess
