Security Hole Announced

Over on Alastair’s blog is a post that Apple has ignored a pretty bad OS X security problem since 2003. I’ve no doubts there are a lot of bugs in OS X, and that there are a lot of them that aren’t known in the white-hat circles. This is pretty bad, and hopefully we’ll see a patch to address it soon. He did it right – he gave Apple a chance to address it without public disclosure and Apple hasn’t responded. Let’s send some feedback to them to get it fixed!
