+ - Mac is fun to hack... Windows less so

Submitted by DevStar
DevStar (943486) writes "Charlie Miller generated some buzz from CanSecWest when he said, "Safari on the Mac is easier to exploit. The things that Windows do to make it harder (for an exploit to work), Macs don't do. Hacking into Macs is so much easier." Of course the pushback was that there was a guy there who hit the trifecta, by exploiting IE, Safari, and Firefox — he would probably have a much more balanced view of the world. His take on this whole Mac vs Windows hacking... well it was surprisingly similar, "Dino [Dai Zovi] had a great quote during his talk: "Exploit writing on the Mac is fun. Exploit writing on Windows Vista is hard work." I totally agree with that.""

The bugs you have to avoid are the ones that give the user not only the inclination to get on a plane, but also the time. -- Kay Bostic
