Trend Micro released a rather interesting report about Apple’s Mac OS X, and it’s not going to make Mac users happy. The report is calling OS X the most dangerous OS to run, siting Apple’s slow cycle of patches and updates, as well as their obsession with secrecy.
Apple has enjoyed a reputation as being virus free, something they played up with great glee during the “I’m a Mac” ad campaign. The problem is now that Apple is gaining more market share, they’ll become a more attractive target for malware and viruses. Trend Micro used last November’s 644mb patch as example, citing the size of the update and the fact that it took five months to be released.
