Mac OS X less secure than Vista?


Time for the Mac fanboys to wipe the smug look off of your face, and bow down to the OS with less holes. According to prize-winning security researcher Dino Dai Zovi, Microsoft Vista is a more secure OS than Apples OS X 10.4 when it comes to vulnerabilities.

"I have found the code quality, at least in terms of security, to be much better overall in Vista than Mac OS X 10.4. It is obvious from observing affected components in security patches that Microsoft's Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) has resulted in fewer vulnerabilities in newly written code. I hope that more software vendors follow their lead in developing proactive software security development methodologies."

This guy isn't some joke either. He took home $10,000 prize for his MacBook hijack a couple of weeks ago.

There is a snow ball in hell enjoying the weather right now!

I think Mike doesn't read our "fair & balanced" news anymore.

He hasn't commented in a long time either.

Oh Snap! Do you think his Mac was too vulnerable and the viruses and remote code execution took over?

nahhh...

I think he's just pissed!!!

No seriously I think he's just busy. And I'm trying to give a fair & balanced news, it just happens to favor Microsoft. But recently I've come to like Apple and their stuff. They do make some good products and I wouldn't turn my nose up at any of it.
