Dave --

The article means NOTHING. Seriously.

A more ACCURATE statistic would be this: Successful_Hacks / ATTEMPTED_Hacks

Ever occur to the anti-Microsoft zealots that, just _maybe_, more people
attempt to hack the IIS rather than, say, Apache. Think about it; the
"typical" hacker -- if you will -- is most likely to be anti-MS and pro-Open
Source. They don't like to feed off their own kind.

I'm NOT saying IIS is the most secure; but I AM arguing for some level of
statistical honesty. Remember: there are lies, damned lies, and statistics.

(and Microsoft press releases after that <grin>)
