"As any regular reader of this blog knows, Apple's Mac OS X is not exactly
safe and secure. In fact, when it comes to targeted attacks (like Aurora
and the kinds that Google should be worried about), the Mac might be the
easiest to penetrate because it lacks the anti-exploit mitigations now
common in Windows.
This story makes little sense to me. For starters, Google's software
products are made for - and marketed to - mainly Windows users. How
exactly are software developers expected to build products for an operating
system when they're not allowed to use it?
As much as we love to bash on Microsoft over security, the newest versions
of the Windows operating system are by far the most difficult to penetrate.
If Google has an internal problem with mass-market malware (scareware,
ID-theft trojans, etc.), then it would make sense to push some departments
to an alternative OS but if this is a reaction to the Aurora attacks, then
the company is pushing its head deep into the sand."
Just another Google publicty stunt!
Of course, as always, most Linux loons, fell for it!, ha ha! :-p
