Quick Word about Apple Security

mac-shield_Perry _Hall_PC_REPAIRAs Apple gains more market share, the number of threats will also increase as more underground organizations devote resources to finding flaws. Making matters worse is the mistaken belief by many of Apple’s users that they are invulnerable,  making them easier to exploit. Remember that no operating system is 100% secure, and many exploits target the user and/or third party software, not the operating system itself.

Recently, a vulnerability was discovered that allowed a developer to introduce unapproved code into an already approved App in the App store. This would allow someone to submit clean code, then add an exploit after the App is approved. Of course, this person was banned from Apple, which makes it unlikely that other developers will risk revealing security flaws to Apple should they find them.
