+ - Apple Ends Security Updates for 5-Year-Old Macs->

Submitted by
the JoshMeister
the JoshMeister writes "On Friday, Apple released Security Update 2011-005 for only Mac OS X v10.7 Lion and v10.6 Snow Leopard, both of which can only run on Intel-based Macs. This officially and quietly cuts off all users of G4 and G5-based Macs (some of which Apple was still selling less than 5 years ago) from ever receiving OS security updates again. Many Mac users are now left stranded with perfectly good hardware and an insecure operating system, and since Apple has neglected to warn users of Leopard and previous versions of Mac OS about the lack of updates, most of them will never know there is a problem."

+ - Does Mac Security Suck?->

Submitted by the JoshMeister
the JoshMeister (742476) writes "Apple's "Get a Mac" campaign takes aim at Windows security, but how does Windows really stack up against the Mac? Recently on the Tech Pulse podcast, the state of Mac OS X security was discussed, including comparisons between Leopard and Vista and a look at where Mac security excels and where it falls short."
