Well, I'm not sure about MVS and its (Internet) security record, but there
was a lovely article about hacking OS/400 in 2600 recently. Has anyone run
across a similarly useful catalog of MVS's problems?
I think that since many of the (in)security problems on the Internet are
unix-related, people can all too easily build a false sense of security
around the "not-unix". I'm just waiting for the first Windows NT problem to
show up on the CERT list; given the number of NT-based web servers out
there, I suspect it's only a matter of time. Just to set the record
straight, although I've worked with Unix for longer, I'm also an NT fan. In
fact, I'm typing this on an NT system, so no flames please :-)...
Just my $0.02 for a change :-).
