Mac OS X Secunia said there are potential vulnerabilities in the Mac OS X operating system, first noticed by Tom Ferris. The firm described the holes as 'highly critical', meaning that systems could be compromised if crooks dive in. Secunia said the potential holes are in version 10.4.6, but other versions might be affected too.

Dude. Chill. Turn on your "Software Update" in your Preference Panel. If security holes exists; the nice men at Apple will fix them.

OS 9 was "secure" 'cause it had no command line and internally worked bassackwards from any other OS on the planet; and would likely take PPC asm guru to come up with a decent exploit.

When you here of MASS infected OS X systems being taken down; then
b!tch at Apple. Since there are NO ( that's 0, Z-E-R-O) cases of any users being infected or exploited, I'd say Apple's track record is still in tact.

They are FAR from perfect and have been a little slow in the past on a security hole or two; but with a track record like they have I suppose it would not be hard to do.
