Apple criticised for persistent Trojan flaw


An Apple patch released last week doesn't completely fix a high-profile Mac OS X flaw, leaving a toehold for cyberattacks, experts said.

The Mac maker released a security update for its operating system on Wednesday to plug 20 holes. The patch arrived after two weeks of intense scrutiny of the safety of OS X, prompted by the discovery of two pieces of malware, and the disclosure of a vulnerability that was deemed "extremely critical" by security monitoring company Secunia.
