Security expert to poke holes in Mac OSX

Canadian insecurity expert Charlie Miller says that he will tell attendees at this years Hackapalooza CanSecWest how he found 20 zero-day flaws in Apple's OSX operating system.

Previous reports that Miller would reveal full details of the bugs have been denied in a Twitter posting.

The flaws were uncovered using a technique called 'fuzzing' which bombards a system's input channels with a barrage of corrupted data according to H Security.

Much has been made of Apple's self-proclaimed superiority when it comes to security, but most people in the know reckon the company has achieved its enviable record by means of security through obscurity, a theory with which Miller concurs.

"Mac OS X is like living in a farmhouse in the country with no locks, and Windows is living in a house with bars on the windows in the bad part of town."

Apple systems are quite often the first to fall in hacking competitions, but still remain comparatively malware and virus free.

We can only conclude that all online deviants are Apple fanbois.
