What makes a bad virus bad?

Harder to detect, harder to remove... how do modern viruses fight back against the white hats? A reasonably technical, reasonably legible answer from Patrick Fitzgerald of Symantecx: W32.Virut.CF—Collateral Damage.

Publishing Portal

The Publishing Portal is designed to be used as an Internet Presence Site.
It is restricted to using simple Publishing sites as child sites and doesn't
have access to all the list and library types available in the Collaboration
Portal. Other child site types and the full range of list/library types can
be made available in a Publishing site by adjust configuration and turning
on Features, but they aren't there out of the box. The Collaboration Portal
is designed more for use as an Intranet site where users will be creating
their own pages of content (Publishing). It includes all the normal
Collaboration features out of the box and includes a number of custom sites
for things like a centralized Document repository, Reporting Site, and an
alternate way to find sub sites (Sites Directory).

What you have proposed would probably be best built from a Publishing Portal
after the Team Site is added back in as an available Site Definition. (You
can do this in the Site Settings page of the Top level site using the Site
Templates and Page Layouts link). You will also want to turn on the
TeamCollab Site Collection Feature to make all the Lists/Libraries
available. Otherwise your setup is a matter of setting up Anonymous access
rights on the Child sites appropriately.

Publishing Portal

We would like to have a Internet site with several team sites. The Top
Site would have the majority of Internet content for the public. When
directed to a team site within the site collection through the
Navigation Bar, we would like each of these sites to have an Internet
Welcome for the public. Then all other content for those team sites
would be only for internal personnel.

Our questions:
- the Top Site as a Publishing Portal or a Collaboration Publishing
- the other sub-sites as Team Sites?
- what is the difference between the Publishing Portal vs a
Collaboration Portal? (In other words, what advantage does a
Publishing Portal have over the Collaboration Portal?)
