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.

MacOSX has always had the firewall disabled (well when I used it Jaguar to Leopard), because it basically stops any problems with network enabled programs.

Apple don't give a f--k about security. They only care about the pretence of it.
