Interview With The Hacker Who Tried To Make Mac OS X Malware

Published March 3rd, 2006
MacSlash | Interview With The "Virus" Creator All this brouhaha about the pitiful worm that was let loose to exploit some security weaknesses in Mac OS X is perhaps understandable. After all, many of us have been bleating loudly about the Mac's superiority over Windows in security. Doesn't the worm prove us wrong? This interview, and the fascinating dialogue on MacSlash that accompanies it, only reinforces my view that Mac OS X is far safer to use than Windows. Does it have weaknesses? Certainly! Are they truly exploitable by a virus? Highly doubtful. How about by worms or adware? More likely, but as attempts like this are made, the opportunities for doing so will shrink even further.
