Privacy, Security, Encryption Dino Dai Zovi, the New York-based security researcher who took home USD b10000 in a highly-publicized MacBook Pro hijack on April 20, has been at the center of a week's worth of controversy about the security of Apple's operating system. In an e-mail interview with Computerworld, Dai Zovi talked about how finding vulnerabilities is like fishing, the chances that someone else will stumble on the still-unpatched bug, and what operating system - Windows Vista or Mac OS X - is the sturdiest when it comes to security.

In the year my mom has had her iMac, she has had:

0 pieces of spyware.
0 viruses.
0 crashes.

Is that because it's turned off?

I use both OSX and Windows at work and at home. I like Windows a lot more and it's as stable as OSX. No spyware or malware and only the odd crash once a year to spice things up - on both systems.
