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.

Emm, in reality, the sky is BLACK. You only see light being refracted through particles in the atmosphere.
Blue light bends more than other colours in the spectrum, so therefore you perceive that the sky is blue.

BTW, there is an interesting twist to this. When the two Mars rovers sent back their first pictures from MArs surface, NASA falsely coloured the sky reddish/pink, from its natural blue, as they believed the general population thought the sky should be red.

In reality, all planetary objects with a dense enough atmosphere will have "blue" skies

Emm..... when in reality, they will all be black

No, in reality, the sky is blue, and you even explained why.

sky |sk?| noun (pl. skies) (often the sky) the region of the atmosphere and outer space seen from the earth

Color my friend is only a sensation in the human brain. The sky or the region of atmosphere and outer space seen from the Earth is mostly black, only light refracted due to the non-uniform optical density (due to different layers of air) appears blue (which covers the entire sky).
