We are requiring suExec for a Perl program we've written and I'm curious 
what percentage of Apache servers we'll be excluding. Failure to run suExec 
was how the Santy Worm defaced over a half a million websites last 
Christmas, so I thought I might find some statistics done by security 
organizations interested in knowing how many servers are still wide open to 
attack, but have come up with nothing.

I'm wondering if anyone has seen any surveys on what percentage of Apache 
servers are running the suExec utility. I know it is turned on by default 
on Plesk, CPanel and Ensim and any big hosting company that's paying 
attention has it running. I have the feeling the answers are available - 
I'm just asking the wrong questions to find them. Anyone seen anything on
