Solaris 10 Security

In recent years, IT organizations have endured relentless and increasingly sophisticated attacks to their infrastructure and data. Most of these attacks are launched from the Internet, but increasingly, security violations are reported from inside the organization. These attacks, which include viruses, worms and buffer overflow exploits, exponentially increase the risks corporations face in conducting business. Over the years, the cost of acquiring and managing security technologies has skyrocketed. The Blaster worm in 2003 shutdown the systems of freight operator CSX and the operations of Air Canada, costing these companies millions of dollars. The "SQL Slammer" worm of 2003 was estimated to have caused the failure of 13,000 Bank of America ATM machines and cost companies nearly $1.2 billion in lost productivity in its first five days despite a readily available security patch.

The good old Solaris 10 and its security. I can remember losing a lot of nights on this...
