Submission + - Stunning show of /. OSX positive bias

skinfitz writes: Two serious security issues have affected OSX over the last week or so, however curiously, neither have appeared on /. — not even buried in the Apple section.

There is a DMG exploit, and also the first piece of AdWare for OSX.

Now US Cert has issued a formal warning and even the mass media is starting to report on the DMG issue, it's going to be interesting to see how deep the /. OSX security denial runs and for how long it can not report on these issues.

The value of a program is proportional to the weight of its output.
