Privacy, Security, Encryption Fresh from winning the PWN2OWN contest yesterday, Charlie Miller has been interviewed by ZDNet. He talks about how Mac OS X is a very simple operating system to exploit due to the lack of any form of anti-exploit features. He also explains that the underlying operating system is much more important in creating a successful exploit than the bowser, why Chrome is so hard to hack, and many other things.

Still, you probably are much more secure on the Mac than on Windows anyway. This is so simply because Macs are targeted very seldom compared to Windows machines (not the most technically stylish way to stay safe, but very effective ;) . So, really, just making sure you are patched up and taking care in surfing iffy sites tends to be plenty.
