What you think about the latest Mac OS X 10.4.x Security flaws?
I think it will go fast then it goes like Windows Systems more and
more Trojan Horse and other security bugs...
I think McAfee, Symantec, et.al. are all licking their chops at a new
venue to hawk their products. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they're
at least indirectly behind some of the "research" into those
MAC users are also part of this problem, IMHO .. they're an elitist
group that thinks their trendy little toy is immune to everything. Add
to that MAC is built on UNIX, something your average art student knows
even less about than Windows, and an operating system that's a lot more
fun to tamper with once you're in.
