Debian Servers Hacked
Project Debian is a 10-year-old variant of the Linux kernel, popular among the independent, or "enthusiast," crowd of programmers. The breach underlines that any operation system, even Linux -- often held up as a benchmark in security compared to other operating systems (namely Microsoft) -- is vulnerable to hacks.
"Today's software has a high degree of complexity and you cannot eliminate all problems, unfortunately," Schulze said. "Every GNU/Linux distribution is vulnerable, even OpenBSD faces vulnerabilities, however, quite seldom."
