Kudos to Apache
I'm impressed with this response from Apache - not only did they 'fess up' to being attacked, but they're also saying "this is how they did it" and "here's how we're closing the door". The latter two being particular valuable information to others (me included) in how to secure their systems (in case they're vulnerable to the same hit). I don't see anything here that'll convince me to stop using their products on Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, etc.
Re: "diversity...?" (by milo5) " Yep... Steering clear from "mono-culture" like Linux from now on."
Clear off back under your bridge MS-troll! You can't have it both ways, claiming Linux is "too disparate" (as Ballmer claims) and the opposite when it suits you. Oh, and an fyi - Solaris (mentioned in the platform list given) is _no_ form of Linux.
The point being made in the post "Diversity won over the hackers" is that following the Redmond corporate line and only having Windows (although I would have assumed that this would be Windows+IIS rather than Windows+Apache) servers is a bad idea. One gets pwned, then they all get pwned.
