There, there, it'll be OK, I promise
He's a troll, small children would run screaming after one look.
I'm not too worried about this. I mean, yeah, I ran the update as soon as I saw this article, but I'm more worried about my ISP's unpatched DNS servers than my MacBook. Or any of my Linux or Windows machines. Or my FreeBSD server. Um, or my DD-WRT-flashed router.
OS X: 3. Windows: 1 gazillion. I've had Windows systems get infected just by sitting on a network with another infected machine. In the latest one mine was patched up-to-date (XP Pro) and had an antivirus running. In fact, I've heard stories about Quakecon, where almost everybody came home with malware on their machines. Um, multiple infections, too, not just one. Took my friend more than a week to clean up his system.
You know why Webster sneers at Macs every time somebody finds a problem? Because he can. I can't do that for Windows because there aren't enough hours in a day. Some of us have to work for a living.
Hah hah! Take that, Mr. Phreaky. Hah hah! No, I'm sorry, I'm just having a bad day, Webster's a handy target and I like kicking trolls. It's fun to listen to them whine.
Dead vulture because it would be fun to kill something right now.
