People can send an email and p0wn your Exchange server.

Meanwhile, an enterprising individual has found a way to compromise Linux boxen, and talks about how Linux users should stop being so haughty, because they're not invulnerable either.

Let's see.. remote server compromise from anyone sending an email to your server vs. an exploit where you have to trick a user into opening an email, saving the attachment, and then clicking on it.

I think I'll continue to be haughty, thanks.

(And with regards to that compromise, I'll just say that “you can't fix stupid”.)
