"So far this year, Apple users have been exposed to the kind of vulnerabilities that are more commonly associated with Windows. The Mac maker has plugged security flaws that could have resulted in OS X customers being 'owned' by basic actions such as visiting a malicious website, watching a video file or opening an email attachment. However, despite all these vulnerabilities, the Mac's resilient platform, its advanced automatic software update tools and the apparent lack of attention from malware authors means Apple users are far safer from attack than users of Windows." On a related note, Apple has released updates to iTunes and QuickTime. The QuickTime update eliminates the need to buy QuickTime Pro in order to play videos full screen.
