I heard this statement:

The security of the server is usually much higher than that of a normal PC. Generally, it is impossible to implant a bot through Infection, Website Malicious Code, etc.

Can someone explain this statement? Is it because the server OS is different?

    Sounds like complete lies. Also, the heck is "webpage hanging"? – grawity Jun 11 at 7:48
  • it's Website Malicious Code. – 244boy Jun 11 at 7:50
  • That statement is garbage (demonstrably false). How does the maker of the statement think maicious code gets into websites without getting onto the server. Ignoring stuff used by the best of the best hackers (eg firmware backdoors, rowhammer attacks) a server and desktop will have the same vulnerabilities if they run the same software. – davidgo Jun 11 at 9:21

"Impossible" is a big word and inappropriate.

What this means is probably that a pure server has no users that are surfing the web on unsafe websites, or download doubtful software or receive phishing emails and carelessly click bait links.

In that respect, without the human factor, a server would be much safer, but far from safe. Nothing that is connected to the Internet can be said to be safe.
