Mac OS X We don't normally report on security issues, especially not when they occur on Mac OS X. So far, the security issues on the Mac can barely be labelled as such, and really don't deserve a lot of attention. Now, however, it would appear we're looking at the first successful widespread malware infection on Mac OS X. Not a bad track record for an eleven year old operating system, by the way.

As a Windows user, having listened to Mac users tell me for years how much better the Mac was because Macs never got infected with viruses and stuff, I always knew it was only a matter of time until the day came when they would get theirs as well, despite being told by some that it would never happen. And now that it has, there is no joy in this for me. To all of my Mac-using brethren out there who get infected by this (and other things), I extend my condolences. You guys now get to share the love ;)
