Na “Zero Day Patch Exposing Vendors (In)security Performance” izlaganju koje je upriličeno na Black Hat konferenciji u Amsterdamu sigurnosni stručnjaci su analizirali načine kako se Microsoft i Apple bore protiv slabih tačaka u svojim operativnim sistemima. I dok je na izlaganju primećeno da Microsoft to radi mnogo bolje nego u prošlosti, govornici su se složili da Apple ima sve većih problema sa slabim tačkama u okviru svog OS X operativnog sistema. Izvedeno je i jedno zanimljivo poređenje. U periodu od 2002 - 2007 Microsoft je imao 658 srednje i visoko kritične slabe tačke u poređenju sa 738 koliko je uočeno kod Apple-a.

The revived popularity of Apple's products, the researchers suggest, may have left Apple unable to keep up. "Comparing the number of unpatched vulnerabilities per vendor for the period since January 2002 we observe a striking difference between Microsoft and Apple," the report says. "On average, Microsoft succeeds to keep the average number of unpatched vulnerabilities below 20 at a steady number. On the opposite, Apple seems unable to stabilize the number of unpatched vulnerabilities in recent years. We observe a steady increase in recent years for Apple. It seams [sic] that Apple's security processes and resources cannot cope with the side-effects of the increased popularity of their products."

Indeed, some Apple partisans have suggested that the successful hacking of a MacBook Air in the "PWN to OWN" contest at the CanSecWest security conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, last week was a deliberate attempt by security researchers to win Apple's sleek subnotebook for themselves and a rejection of the Sony Vaio and Fujitsu U810 computers that winning contestants could also have walked away with.

It should be noted that the researchers are analyzing Apple's patch process rather than the overall security of its products. The fact that antivirus software is still optional on Macs and all but necessary on Windows PCs demonstrates where the risk of malware is actually present.

Macs continue to benefit from security through obscurity, but that advantage is eroding as Mac market share continues to rise. Mac users may not welcome this, but computer security vendors surely will.
