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."

rm -rf ~/ isn't a security vulnerability, it's a feature. If you're too stupid to have backups of important files, and too ignorant to run under a non-privlidged user account, then you deserve losing everything.

lol! Why the hell would anyone stupid enough to type this even have a command line open?!?! Same for the Windows "flaw"....
