It's not exactly new news. Macs have been hacked first in the last few Pwn2Own competitions. But it is normally though some hole in Adobe's Flash Player. Either way, there is no safe OS, unless you are smart about what you do and where you browse. It's pathetic though to be less secure than Windows when your OS is based on UNIX, so Apple has to step up their security because they are gaining ground in the market and will soon be the next target for hackers and malware coders.

LOL.Both systems are good.And anyone saying there's no virus on mac they are false.(there are a 'very few' unlucky mac users that have been affected by virus).Though most viruses come from their mac's sharing files from pc's :P .And apple admitted themselves that they didn't change much in SL so it's no big deal.

As for the windows vs. Mac vs. linux/unix/solaris, I prefer macrokernel os's(sadly there's no macrokernel open-source operating systems, so that means I prefer macs(blushing).I wish they were open-source though).But all os's have their places and are performs some stuffss better than others.So to the fanboys, stop trolling and go get a life(no offense to anyone ;) )

Hm. A nice guy commented on that article so i'm quoting him:

"Hi Guys, I think there is a little misunderstanding: Miller it talking about hackers' attacks, which cannot be considered as a single user/final user problem. By this point of view, anyone knows that Apple OS is not affected by any viruses problem (which instead is the major problem with Microsoft OS). Hacker is a server/web server problem, but honestly I see no reasons to use Apple OS (or Microsoft OS) for a server, instead of Unix/Linux." :yes:

Edit:sorry I didn't notice the time :cry: Really sorry.But I didn't find a delete msg button....sorry again...won't happen again :no:

Two things.

1. There is an EDIT button, use it.
2. Don't bump a 1 month old thread, the discussion is over.
