Over the past year, Symantec has documented 37 high-severity vulnerabilities in Mac OS X. These vulnerabilities have been confirmed by the vendor, which, in the Apple case, almost always means that the company has released a patch. The appearance of a rootkit called Opener in October 2004, serves to illustrate the growth in vulnerability research on the OS X platform. Additionally, multiple remote and local vulnerabilities have been disclosed that affect both the server and desktop versions of OS X.
Contrary to popular belief, the Macintosh operating system has not always been a safe haven from malicious code. Out of the public eye for some time, it is now clear that the Mac OS is increasingly becoming a target for the malicious activity that is more commonly associated with Microsoft and various UNIX-based operating systems. Symantec believes that as the popularity of Apple’s new platform continues to grow, so too will the number of attacks directed at it.
Between July 1 and December 31, 2004, Symantec documented 13 vulnerabilities affecting Microsoft Internet Explorer. This is notably lower than the 21 vulnerabilities affecting each of the Mozilla browsers that were documented during the same period. Six vulnerabilities were reported in Opera and none in Safari.
Ne znam da li Apple treba da se raduje ili ne, shto polako, ali sigurno, postaje popularan i kod hakera :)
