I agree with you Mr. Ang

" It's not the webserver software that's usually not secure, but what you
run on it "

I have run several lighttpd webserver and the problem is not on the lighttpd
but the system or cms that run on it.
joomla, drupal or others cms have a hole on it.

Everyone have the source code and our job is to patch and keep it secure.

no matter what os you install, what type of web server you are using, always
keep your eye open.
