I was duly impressed with the recent ComputerWorld article about how Microsoft fends off 100,000 attacks per month. That is a lot of attacks! The article doesn't mention what Microsoft has spent on security, but my guess is: More than your company's revenues. So what is a poor company to do? Like wine, it is easy find a good bottle of $30 wine, the challenge is finding a good bottle of $8 wine (and were talking magnum). Luckily, thanks to open source software and the many tools built into Linux, even the stingiest of companies can have good security.

One of our users just provided us with documentation on how to convert the WiKID Strong Authentication server rpms to .debs for Ubuntu. This is great news for the many fans of Ubuntu. We will include as much of this code as possible in the 3.2 release to make it even easier to use alien to convert the rpms.
