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.

Well besides the funny of Macs getting a major blast here, even though it's happened plenty of times in the past..

Firstly, they prove more than anything that their security ideas have always been that no one will hit us 'cause we're a minority. Some of the security vulnerabilities that have hit Mac OS are seriously laughable.

But this particular case is because of Java, which is a security crapfest in itself, even more so since Apple rolls their own.
