Mac OS X It's sad to see that even after all these years, we still have to write articles like this one. It's all over the web right now: a new backdoor Mac OS X trojan discovered! Code execution! Indicative of rise in Mac malware! Until, of course, you actually take a look at what's going on, and see that not only is it not in the wild, it can't really do anything because it's a beta.

Worst Scum in the software industry.

"Like politicians, security companies are not tobe trusted, and are probably the worst scum in the software industry."


And I thought the worst scum in the software industry are those who erect walled gardens and impose restrictions on digital content so that consumers can't exercise their legal rights (at least in the US). The era of locked-down/locked-in computing continues to chip away at the pillars of open computing.
