Despite Vulnerabilities, Apple's Mac OS X Weathers The Security Storm


While an increasing number of bugs have been found in Apple's Mac OS X operating system, security researchers say it isn't a high security risk and it's still more secure than Windows XP. Is it more secure than Windows Vista? The jury is still out on that one.

"Vulnerabilities just don't equal attacks," said Craig Schmugar, a threat researcher at McAfee, in an interview.
