People always tell me not to engage the trolls, but it's SOOO DIFFICULT!!!!I can't wait till more articles like these come up, they give me a good laugh about the stupidity of isheeps.
Yep but don't you also need upgraded users? Or should i say cutting edge users? Ones who don't buy bill gates toilet ware. I mean software?People always tell me not to engage the trolls, but it's SOOO DIFFICULT!!!!
Looks like the Mac mythology is being debunked recently. Just in time for the new 2012 MBPs, too. I'd use it as a marketing strategy to sell the new models, stating that the new Ivy Bridge chips are impervious to trojans because they are cutting edge technology. Being that only 1 in 15 Apple loyalists would be able to smell the funk on that assertion, the strategy could pay off pretty handsomely.
Joking aside, I am surprised it's taken this long for OSX to be put in the crosshairs of coders out there.
These aren't vulnerabilities in the Mac OS itself. The recent trojans are because of a vulnerability in Java. Now the Mac ecosystem allowed these to come to the forefront because they took ~2 months to patch it while in Windows and Linux it was patched quickly. But touting Linux being more secure and using this as your evidence is disingenuous because had it not been patched in Linux, the same thing could have happened.That is why Linux is more secure than other OSes, it has nothing to do with market size. A long time ago Microsoft did not have the biggest market share, but they still had the most viri and trojans. The common factor in all of this is the Oses with the worst security are the OSes that run Microsoft products.
