Mac Not So Tough Any More

Mac security really took a nose dive this week with both concerns about security in the latest release, Leopard, and a Trojan written specifically for Macs. And Mac users thought they were secure. So much for that.

Several commentators questioned the access controls in Leopard in this round up from Computer World. Then eWeek poked holes through its firewall.

But the big news was the Trojan that redirected users to porn sites. Now, this isn't brain surgery. Windows users have seen this nonsense before, but a Mac-specific Trojan, that's something else.

Details were on the SunbeltBLOG, Macworld, Computer World and eWeek.
