Mac OS X While Snow Leopard includes some improvements in the area of security, noted security researcher Charlie Miller, winner of two consecutive "Pwn2own" hacker contests and co-author of The Mac Hacker's Handbook, concludes that Apple missed the boat on security in Mac OS X Snow Leopard. "Snow Leopard's more secure than Leopard, but it's not as secure as Vista or Windows 7," Miller said.

Thom likes to spread Apple FUD, since he's now turned his back on it.

So what, exactly, is "FUD" about this article? I'm genuinely interested.

"Snow Leopard's more secure than Leopard, but it's not as secure as Vista or Windows 7," - to include this in your summary

Actually, all I've seen here is Windows FUD.

Mac OS X is vulnerable, Windows is vulnerable. It is Apple and Microsoft responsibility to care about security as software company. It is our responsibility to care for it as PC/Mac owners. Microsoft has shown how to act without a security based mindset and they have been forced to care for it since then. Same can still happened to Apple, and all they'll face is bad press and potentially market share losses.

As for knowing the numbers of vulnerabilities, it is just kikimeter for the masses.
