and here lies the problem, an 18 month old installation with connection to
the big bad world. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE  see the security bug fixs at  . While FreeBSD is a good reliable NOS it is vunerable to
exploitation and the failure of sysadmins to patch and update will leave us
as a community open to the same problems experienced by Microsoft IIS users
I am still getting requests to my web servers from code red through the
failure of the administrators to apply the security patches. I realise time
is a precious commodity but a stich in time and all that.
