Mac OS X more vulnerable than WinXP

Article Reads:7363

Jack Writes: Apple's Mac OS X has many security vulnerabilities than its Windows XP counterpart, according to a ZDNet blog posting that polls the number of vulnerabilities from the independent security research group Secunia.

Along with the number of CVE issues for Microsoft Windows XP and Mac OS X within the last two years. The posting follows the recent reports of Mac OS X worms and an extremely critical Mac OS X zero-day exploit that has yet to be patched. Looking for a better response from Apple on the security, George Ou concludes: "The data is clear, and Apple has a lot more vulnerabilities of every kind ranging from moderately critical to extremely critical. While Windows had some months with more security disclosures, they are more spread out while Apple tends to release mega-advisories with dozens of vulnerabilities at a time. There were seven months where Apple disclosed more a dozen or more highly critical vulnerabilities."
