Have there been any instances where there have been horrible security breaches or bugs in the Linux system? If so, what are some of the worst examples?

Passwords are the worst case, IMO. Which the root problem would be Users.

On webservers it would be applications installed (such as PHP or ASP apps).

passwords, surely. but that's mostly because of the users, not the system per se.

Yeah, I absolutely agree with you. Passwords could cause a real mess sometimes:)
