Mac OS X "[Last week], we reported on a Trojan horse for Mac OS X that is just like the entry for Earth in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in that it is mostly harmless. A new vulnerability targeted at Apple's home-grown web browser, Safari, is another matter entirely. A German security firm appears to have been the first to discover the Safari flaw, which allows for shell scripts to be executed after clicking a link."

True, but in reality there is little to worry about because as I stated before the file will NOT be executable. It's ignorant to think that A. "rm -rf /" is a virus and B. that it is at all a danger to Linux/Unix boxes. Windows is more prone to a "virus" like that than Linux is.
