Mac OS X Looks like Apple might have changed their mind and rushed a security update against Mac Defender a bit too quickly. "Hours after Apple released [the] update and the initial set of definitions, a new variation of Mac Defender is in the wild. This one has a new name, Mdinstall.pkg, and it has been specifically formulated to skate past Apple's malware-blocking code." Update: And one day later, Apple has updated its malware definitions to detect the new version. MD's turn.

i hope this continues as long as possible, because in the end apple will produce more secure and fool-proof system.

especially the latter part is important. it seems that security defaults on mac os also leave quite a few things to be desired.

Not necessarily. Internet Explorer 6 has had constant security patches for years and it's still insecure.
