Privacy, Security, Encryption It's that time of the year again; that time of the year where news outlets get to indulge in sensationalist headlines about how Mac OS X got hacked in twenty seconds. Yes, CanSecWest just held its Pwn2Own contest again, and they fell like drunk 16-year-olds this time (don't read too much into that one, please).

Maybe you didn't notice, but we don't have viruses anymore like in the 90s.

Funny, I guess I must be imagining all these XP machines people are still using that I *still* end up having to remove viruses from. Maybe you didn't notice, but there aren't a whole lot of consumers throwing away their three or four year old hardware for a Windows 7 machine and many of them don't know how to upgrade or even that they should. Hell, some of them did upgrade and didn't like it and what did they do? Back to XP... and back to virus hell. As long as XP survives, we will never be free of this.
Yes, we still do have those viruses.
