Actually, that is another fallacy.

The majority of SQL Injections are on Apache-based systems.

Look, this isn't a blame-game in which we need to point out one vendor,
operating system, plug-in, browser, or whatever.

The problem is that it is a wide-spread problem wherein we have millions of
compromised consumer (and non-consumer) hosts doing the bidding of Bad
Guys.

I would certainly love to hear your solution to this problem.

And stop pointing fingers.
