honeypots & life expectancy

Honeynet has an interesting article online comparing the “life expectancy” of unpatched systems. Apparently, the mean time before compromise of Linux has gone from 3 days to 3 months! While Windows have gone from days to hours or even minutes before compromise. It’s also interesting that they note the compromised systems were attempted to be user for IRC bots and phishing scams.
