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.

I as a mac user never claimed there will never be a serious security threat. Although most user does. Pretty serious thing considering it just needs to access a website to get infected. What happened to Java sandboxing?

Nobody is perfect, this is a bug in the VM.
