It seems that OSX are now struggling to keep their operating systems security due to their disbelief that no matter what they do they will be secure because the have a Mac. Two attacks are now being directly targeted at OSX users via mass emails called OSX/Tored-A and OSX/Jahlav-C that tricks the user into downloading a virus to take control of their computer. What also makes this all the more dangerous for OSX users is that most people still don’t run Anti-Virus software and it was only last year that Apple started to “recommend” customer run anti-virus software. This is in stark contrast to Microsoft view that Anti-Virus software is so important that they have started to give away it own Anti-Virus software Microsoft Security Essentials .
Also in other Apple security related issues it seems there is a bug in the spotlight search program that allows users to still read emails after they have been deleted. Presumably this is due to the search index having a cached copy of all the emails that it does not let go after the email is deleted. Below is a video demonstration of the issue. No word when this will be fixed but we can only hope that it will be resolved when the iPhone 3.1 OS is released.
