    Stealthier Mac Attacks (2 web pages).

    A new technique lets hackers targeting Apple's OS X cover their tracks more effectively.

    Thanks for posting that. We need to keep in mind that OSX is not immune to attacks (nor ever will be), even if *some* folks at Apple and in the community proclaim otherwise.

    I personally think Apple needs to dedicate *way* more resources to security prevention/response and change their public attitude about this topic. They have been able to market themselves as virtually immune for too long based on their smaller market share. Now that they are becoming a larger force in the market, it should be assumed that "technology anarchists" have turned their attention to Apple products.

    Every fortress has a vulnerable spot, be it by design or the "erosion" of time. :)
