Hi there,

so this is really your opinion?

All security issues are mostly against the running service not the os itself and the service didnt change if you use a different OS, on BSD systems it is handwork needed to run the update, most linux OSes have a autoupdate feature.  Therfore you should take a look at hardening the components like 

* Apache : mod_security, su_exec, etc, maybe you wanne chroot the whole webservice ( or jail it)
* MySQL: set listening address to localhost only
* php: use stable release

On Ubuntu (for example) you should use auto updates for critical security updates and try to use the mediawiki from the repository.

General on Linux system you should use a firewall and let services listen only to local ip addresses.

Regards?
