I previously posted about my concerns about Mac owners smugly professing to be running a much more secure OS than Windows... My thought being that it wasn't that OSX couldn't be hacked or infected by viruses, but rather that nobody really took the time to try, that it simply wasn't as attractive a target as big and mighty Microsoft's offerings... That it very likely also suffered from its own share of bugs and vulnerabilities (and it does).
Turns out my suspicions have been vindicated - Turns out a "smug Mac owner" put up a server running OSX boldly challenging folks to hack it - and the rest has been ugly. Hacked and defaced within 30 minutes. The tune has been rapidly changing...
