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.

Why hasn't this happened sooner

As an ex-OSX user (Jaguar to Leopard), I am really surprised that this hasn't happened before.

The default configuration for OSX From Jaguar to Snow Leopard was with the Firewall OFF.
