Securitysplainin'

The Macalope | April 9, 2014
Isn't it nice that so many people who are ostensibly not Mac users are still very concerned about Mac security? It's sweet the way they look out for us.

Wlodarz, like a number of Apple critics, is bent out of shape because the company advertises its platforms as being more secure. Well, practically speaking, they are (iOS definitely is). Not through some kind of magic, but because there are fewer exploits of their vulnerabilities. Recent releases of its software have more fully implemented security technologies and removed weak points like Flash and Java.

Are Macs still vulnerable to attack? Sure. But asking Apple to stop marketing a key advantage? Well, no. Sorry.
