Having done a search on "Linux AND Botnet" - google...I find some fuzzy information on Linux servers, particularly web servers, where the source of the malware is unknown.
BUT, I am basically interested in the vulnerability of Linux desktops - that don't run web servers or Samba, NFS, etc.
Any of these being source infections from the newer botnets? I don't see a clear answer from the search answers I have looked at.
