    Which market share? Remember this is software in general, not restricted to that running on Apple hardware/OS for example. Apple's market share of pmp software is almost certainly greater than 1%, and can probably be found on greater than 1% of computers.

    Re: News - Apple software has the most vulnerabilities, says report

    Any bets on apple calling a press conference on Friday and then owning up to the issues and then going on to say that other peoples software has vulnerabilities too complete with video footage?

    I e-mailed Steve Jobs and he replied saying:

    "Non-issue. Just avoid using your computer in that way."

    I guess, and given how safari just completely ignores certain ideas (such as zone flagging of PEs). But these are still user mode apps thou? UAC would catch most surely? ASLR whilst not invulnerable might hinder attempts too.

    but if your running OSX, with its plethora of return to libc, your probably stuffed, however know one uses that OS anyway, so your probably safe.

    Perhaps a strange coincidence, but I got a reply from SJ himself saying Apple would be shipping out some free cases to stop viruses getting in :S

    Love the way you describe Apple as The iPod-maker.
