  1. .and bang go all the much publicised OS X security threats published by ZDnet, the BBC and the US government…

    Again the hackers will say ‘why bother trying OS X, Windows is easier and it takes them 6 months before they try to fix a new threat’.

  2. “Does it take care of the iAdware?”

    From my understanding, the iAdware would have to be installed on the computer by the user. Then it could (possibly) run pop ups using WebKit (Safari). So, you would have to be tricked into installing a Trojan before you would be affected by iAdware.

    It is pretty difficult (impossible) to design a usable system that would prevent you from installing a Trojan. The best way to guard against Trojans is to only install software that you get from trustworthy sources.

  3. Everything needs incremental improvement. But does it come before or after 200,000 attacks is the question.

    Koolaid guy, you have a little stuff…um.. yeah, right here. On your lip…
