    Lest we become too smug in Mac-land...

    There's a new exploit out against OS X. Apple hasn't posted a fix yet, but there are steps you can take (see either of the links below). Looks like Safari users are the most vulnerable.

    Apparently a proof of concept exploit was released with the announcement.

    Geez... Apple should remove all helper apps.

    First help:// now ftp://
    At least Apple is getting a taste of what it must feel like to be a Microsoft programer. lol

    (ps. it also does it under IE so Safari users aren't the only one's not vulnerable)
