Mac OS X Named in the SANS Top 20

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by MacSecurityNews, May 1, 2006.

  1. According to the latest SANS Institute Top 20 Internet Security
    Vulnerabilities report, Mac OS X is rapidly becoming a new source for
    vulnerabilities.

    SANS listed its top trend as the rapidly increasing vulnerabilities ­
    including a zero-day flaw ­ appearing in Mac OS X, as the UNIX-based
    platform grows in popularity.

    "The experts involved in the Top 20 update agree that OS X still
    remains safer than Windows, but its reputation for offering a
    bullet-proof alternative to Windows is in tatters," according to the
    Top 20 report. "OS X vulnerabilities are being discovered at a rapid
    pace, as attackers are increasingly turning their attention to the
    platform, which could erode this safety in the future."
