The least secure os is DVL - Damn Vulnerable Linux. It's actually designed to have as many flaws as possible, which is great if you want to learn how to patch stuff Grin

There is no most/least secure OS (DVL aside, I'm talking true deployable stuff), it all depends on how you configure it and what you put on there.

i think the most secure is actually OpenBSD.

it claims: "Only two remote holes in the default install, in more than 10 years!"

and the least secure, imho, is Windows 95 and 98.
back then even if an account is passworded, you can just click cancel on the login screen and it'll still log you in.

and remember when cDc gained wide interest for releasing BackOrifice just to show Windows insecurity?

Well, thats what it claims. I wouldn't be surprised if there were others that were secretly patched.

... Or you could just remove the PWL files Pfft for example if there was a password protected account with the username JIMMY, you could just remove %WINDIR%\JIMMY.PWL (mostly C:\WINDOWS\JIMMY.PWL) and then enter a new password for that account next time you started the computer. Lol, I remember making boot disks for that Grin

Btw it worked in Windows 95, 98 and ME as well

I think, it DEPENDS on how the OS was first designed to be how much secured... Smile

It doesn't use much RAM and is actually quite fast, but it KEEPS ON CRASHING AND GETTING BLUESCREENS ALL THE TIME... And it's not very secure :xx:
