Mac OS X "[Last week], we reported on a Trojan horse for Mac OS X that is just like the entry for Earth in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in that it is mostly harmless. A new vulnerability targeted at Apple's home-grown web browser, Safari, is another matter entirely. A German security firm appears to have been the first to discover the Safari flaw, which allows for shell scripts to be executed after clicking a link."

I'm going to guess not many people care about rm -rf / but would be more concered with rf -rf ~/ which would be far more devestating than having to do a reinstall. Oh and it doesn't require any authentication.
