Forwarding Address: OS X

Wednesday, July 07, 2004

Recently it was suggested that OS X was less secure than Windows. In timely fashion MacSecurity notes that Corsaire has published "Securing Mac OS X" [PDF], a whitepaper on just that very topic.


  • Even if that were true, and I doubt very much that it is, the relatively small number of machines running X, especially in business environments, gives it less impact than a Windows security issue.

  • Actually, it was suggested that:
    1) Windows was less insecure than people think; and
    2) Mac OS X is less secure than people think.

    That's all. Not so much that Windows was more secure than Mac OS X. The phrasing used in that Secunia release was misleading.

  • In either case, this is a good document to have.
