Safari users have a security issue!

Posted by todd at 3:03 PM on February 21, 2006

If you are a Mac owner and you use Safari then you need to be aware that there is a security flaw that you need to be aware of. Curious in how in less than one week three security issues surface for the Mac, will the trend continue that is anyones guess. But long gone are the days where Mac users could feel completely secure. Obviously the Mac is well protected in comparison to Windows but this does put a pretty major gap in the armor.

What is concerning is that so many Mac users feel they are invincible that once something does get cut loose looking to damage a lot of mac users are likely not going to be very happy with the destruction that could follow. Whereas Windows users are expecting utter destruction of their PC’s at any given moment at the rate of infections and sophisticated Trojans especially when running Internet Explorer. [heise.de]
