Mac OS X And so the iOS-ification of Mac OS X continues. Apple has just announced that all applications submitted to the Mac App Store have to use sandboxing by March 2012. While this has obvious security advantages, the concerns are numerous - especially since Apple's current sandboxing implementation and associated rules makes a whole lot of applications impossible.

Since Android most exploits are actually social engineering exploits*, not technical ones, iPhone leads in phishing exploits by a wide margin.
On the technical exploits side iOS and Android are on equal footing.


I don't know under which rock you have been hiding, you might want to read up on this to review your opinion.

Are you having issues at understanding the word "technical"? Or are you the type of person that thinks that all malware is based on technical exploits?

PS: You might have had issues with that rock over your had also http://downloadsquad.switched.com/2011/01/07/iphone-users-most-vuln...

PPS: Not a single link that you provide lists a single bug. While I can list at least 2 vulnerabilities(1 remote and 1 local) in Android and 2 remote code execution vulnerabilities in iOS.
