LInux sometimes too secure

I keep 2 Linux machines running, both are running the same Debian, maybe updates and the kernel are different.  I can get the latest gtk-gnutella running on one, and not the other.  It runs into some obscure memory error, which has been going on for 5 years now, with no solution posted.  It's a rare problem that's all in the configuration.  So, no matter what you do, sometimes things just won't install.

This makes it impossible for someone to run a bad program that hits a lot of Linux machines.  To break into one, you need a genius to spend an hour or two trying to crack each machine.  Not like MS bots!
