Apple refuses to fix 10 year old bugs


A SECURITY expert has warned that Apple’s OS X is full of security flaws that were fixed on other operating systems more than a decade ago.

Neil Archibald, senior security researcher at software security specialists Suresec, told ZDNet that while there is no problem at the moment, if OSX becomes popular it could become of interest to hackers. He said that if hackers lifted the bonnet up of the operating system they will find plenty of "low-hanging bugs" to play with. Apple refuses to fix 10 year old bugs
