Ryan Naraine has three blogs pertaining to Apple and Mac's this week that are worth noting. "MacBook Pro hijacked with Safari zero-day" outlines the recent hack of a Mac at last week's CanWest Security conference. The flaw was in the Safari browser.
The day the conference began, the conference organizers updated the two MAC's with the recent security patch. This took away all sorts of security holes the conference attendees could use to crack the MAC's and take them home with them. Ryan's blog on the security patch update can be found here.
What does all this mean?
Mac's are vulnerable to attack like any other OS. While it may not have as many holes as Window's it is still vulnerable. If you're a Mac user don't believe all the marketing hype Apple throws out about security. Better OS doesn't mean impervious and thus you too are prey to malware attacks. If the marketshare grows, expect more zero day vulnerabilities to be found as criminals target the Macs.
