A Picture is Worth…

Richard Stiennon has two wonderful pictures over on his “blog”:http://blogs.zdnet.com/threatchaos about “Why Windows is less secure than Linux”:http://blogs.zdnet.com/threatchaos/?p=311

The two pictures demonstrate the system calls needed for the web server to serve a single static html page, with a single picture. (Apache on Linux, IIS on Windows).

The Windows map gives me the willies.

One thought on “A Picture is Worth…

  1. It would be nice to see some text on those graphs because I completely doubt that apache calls that many unique syscalls to serve a single page. In fact I bet it would be hard to think of that many syscalls that could be used to serve a page. The pretty pictures are completely worthless without some real sense of what they really are.
