Guess the bad press for their lack of fixing previous problems has them thinking a new thinking…maybe…but their lack of addressing past problems in timely manners is usually a good indication of how they view security.

I thought Apple was immune to trojans and virii…

But they not immune to worms.

What’s worse than finding a worm in an Apple?

Finding half a worm…

not if you like meat

Nothing’s immume to trojans, viruses, or other malware.

It just depends on whether the hackers think it’s worthwhile developing specific malware for a particular platform.

Windows is more popular so it’s targetted most.

Apple is always very reluctant to admit security problems and has been criticised widely for underplaying malware infections in the past.

This time round they didn’t have any choice though as it was a critical flaw that had to be dealt with immediately.

That’s if they users admit to Apple having a problem as well.
