Mac OS X We don't normally report on security issues, especially not when they occur on Mac OS X. So far, the security issues on the Mac can barely be labelled as such, and really don't deserve a lot of attention. Now, however, it would appear we're looking at the first successful widespread malware infection on Mac OS X. Not a bad track record for an eleven year old operating system, by the way.

Not a bad track record?

It simply means Apple's new prominence has brought them unwanted attention and they will have to up their security.

Perhaps we will now see if the user privileges model that is so beloved of Apple's fans actually is as solid a defence as they claim.
