What a strange article.... The title (and subtitle) make it seem like Apple has been either negligent or slow to respond to the perceived threats. But if you read the article, it's evident that Apple worked quickly to resolve the problems. The author doesn't seem to acknowledge that, though. Five bug fixes in one year? What's the problem with that? At least Apple is quick to fix them.

Not to mention that the vulnerability of executing malicious programs are on Window only.
So all I can say is oops.
