REDHAT 7.2 Default Scan Results Complete
Linux seems to have this image of being the most secure OS on the market.
So we took it to our test! The results can be found on the "OS
Scan Test" page. This OS proved to be a challenge to our test.
While we would like to remind you that this test should not be considered
the "BOTTOM LINE", it did hold up better against NESSUS and
NMAP than any other OS to date.

after Service Pack 6A? Check out the results on ourl "OS
OS Scan Test
The purpose of this study is to supply an answer to the following question:
"Which Operating System has more known Vulnerabilities with a default
install?" We also wanted to see how much the OS patches released
for it really helped. So we picked several of the more popular Operating
Systems and put them to the test. In this study, we will use Nmap version
2.54BETA 22 and Nessus 1.0.9 to scan Operating Systems installed with
default options and no additional patches or configurations. Then we will
scan them with the latest patches and compare the two scans. Read all
about it on our special "OS Scan
