A good and interesting article about the current security vulnerability on Microsoft Exchange Server software.

So does this mean that for those who are running Linux based servers, that they don't have this security issue??

Yes. Microsoft Exchange Server provides mail and calendar functions and runs exclusively on Windows Server.
