"And you got modded up for your troll...


It wasn't a troll. This news was out and about for a long time already, and the sites that are SUPPOSED to carry it (Mac sites), did not. Explain to me how the latest fart from an Apple employee gets pushed across the Apple blogosphere at lightspeed, but something negative takes days to appear?

They are carrying it and they aren't glossing it over. Days to appear?

http://landonf.bikemonkey.org/2009/05/19#CVE-2008-5353.20090519 was posted on the 19th. The sites I linked to all had stories up today (the 20th). Days... you say.

I suppose you lump this site in with them as well, since it took OSnews a day to get to it as well.

Here is what you said:

Don't count on it. Apple websites will systematically ignore this, and take a guess where the truly major sites get their Mac news from...

Bingo.


So again where are the sites systematically ignoring this?
