New Mac OS Hits Security Snag
So have they been taking a page out of microsoft's book, or what? I haven't heard much one way or another about the new Mac OS, but this certainly isn't promising.
As someone who doesn't do much confidential work on their mac this isn't a big deal, but for companies this could mean big trouble. Here's hoping they get the kinks worked out.
Upgrading to the latest version of Apple's operating system, might make a Mac less secure, say experts.
A test of Leopard revealed that installing it led to the firewall on a Mac being turned off and its default setting changed to leave it disabled.
Heise Security, who conducted the tests, said the failings meant users could not "rely" on the firewall to protect them.
