How secure is your Mac?

Security expert Charlie Miller is due to disclose how he found 20 zero day Mac vulnerabilities at next weeks CanSecWest security conference.

Miller will stop short of exposing the actual vulnerabilities.

In a great analogy about PC security, Miller compared the Mac to a remote farmhouse without locks, suggesting that it's still a 'remote' enough platform to not be 'found' but is actually inherently insecure.

The days of safe Mac computing may well be numbered. We all expect the targeting to increase as the Mac's market share increases.

It's only a matter of time, but as long as you remain security conscious, the Mac is still currently the safest platform.
