Meanwhile, Vint Cerf was estimating 140 *million* compromised hosts, and they're sure as hell not all Linux boxes.
Those several thousand ssh-pounders are insignificant compared to the overall problem. In fact, if you estimate that Linux has even a 1% market share, if Linux was equally heavily exploited, you'd expect to see 1.4 million pwned Linux boxes, rather than just a "couple of thousand".
