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.

From the article:

"Until the holes are filled in, don't visit untrusted web sites, or open ZIP archives or images which come flying your way and that look a tad dodgy."

Gee golly, that sounds like an easy exploit to me. Uh, so AFTER the "vulnerabilities" are fixed, I can go back to using my credit card on untrusted websites and unzipping "dodgy looking" files they "fly my way" all willy nilly?
