Google Google employees have always had a remarkable amount of freedom when it comes to what operating system they wanted to run on company computers - Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, it was all fine. Since the China attacks, however, this has changed: Windows is no longer welcome on Google computers.

That's a dangerous assumption you are making there. Mac OS X boxes get owned all the time. The sneaky part is that the owners don't realize it when that happens. Because it "can't happen".

Do you run without a firewall and with services enabled to the outside world? When was the last time you checked the system logs of your mac for anomalies?

Think about it...

What utter bollocks - please contradict me by offering the slightest bit of evidence to support your absurd statement.

Think about it...


You clearly haven't.

Well, the recent pwn to own contest being an example...

EDIT: Hint, look up Charles Miller and what he has been doing with fuzzing.
