Mac OS X Six months ago, a certain security flaw in Java was fixed by Sun. This flaw was present in OpenJDK, GIJ, icedtea and Sun's JRE, but it got fixed in those. There's one important shipping Java implementation that still has not been fixed to remove this security flaw: Apple's Java.

What is bad, is Apple base their software partly on Open Source and when Open Source project X fixes something, Apple doesn't ship the fixes to the users.


It would be nice if Apple rolled open source patches into their OS updates at a greater clip and I wonder sometimes how many resources they pour into this.

I think there are signs of the company quietly getting more serious about it's security issues. For instance, they just hired Ivan Krstic who was the director security architecture for OLPC. I guess that one just slipped by...
