Submission + - Netbooks are more vulnerable to hackers (redorbit.com)

Bl4ckJ3sus writes: News site Redorbit reports that netbooks are more vulnerable to attacks from hackers due to their lax security. Redorbit interviewed a "marketing manager" at Symantec for his views on netbook security. They also interviewed several other people about the state of netbook security and why "it's not there yet." Nowhere in the article is the mention of which OS makes these netbooks more susceptible to hacking.
