Behold the Poison Apple [SecurityCurve]

A timely Apple reality check; see the full post

So, Ira Winkler has a great post over at ComputerWorld called “It’s time for the FTC to investigate Mac security”.

It’s pure awesomeness.

The point he makes is that Apple continues to beat the drum about how they are immune to security problems, while in fact they are just as susceptible as the next OS. In fact, when you actually look at how long it takes for Apple to publish fixes to vulnerabilities in the underlying code base, they take on average 50 to 100 percent longer to publish fixes than their competition. And yes, by “competition” I also mean the evil empire itself.
