dude, you have GOT to be kidding.
I can exploit Ubuntu 2011 server and client about 10 ways, and
probably same with half this list, it is INDED entry level, or, just
stop handding it out on magazines with "how to use ubuntu! Move to
easy linux now!" promos, and then your words have merit.

To be honest, while Ubuntu is hardly secure, it is not DESIGNED to be

to Ubuntu years ago and stuck with it. I moved on to Debian, they stuck to
Ubuntu and Win7 (eventually) as they are not computer enthusiasts - mere
users.

Bullshit, Ubuntu is designed (or at least, was designed) to be very
secure, check all the stuff it comes by default:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Features

Not even the default Debian kernel has all those features activated. If
I'm wrong, why you see metasploit modules for Debian but not for Ubuntu?
that's the reason.

Recently some stupid people got into management (as always happens) and
we have things like unity, the fucked up 24-bit ASLR in i386, and this
guest account for retards.
