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.

Note though that apple was always eager in it's advertising to group together all malware under the "windows" umbrella regardless of whether microsoft windows was at fault or not.

Now, that view has some merit. We can recognize that the windows experience can be worse for end-users regardless of who is responsible for vulnerabilities. However in order to not be hypocrites, apple would have to admit that mac users are in fact affected by malware.


That's a good point.

Apple can't have it both ways, but Jobs knows they'll try.
