    This just shows that a LOT of people are terrible at administrating their Linux servers. LOL
    I've seen so many Windows Sys-Admins that had a panic attack when faced with a command line.

    In fact, there is a problem that "infects" some people: while thinking Linux is more secure (which is true), they make no effort towards security and most of the times think their invulnerable.
