More holes than a Leopard! Yep, Mac sucks!
This is soon going to be coined as one of the worst security downgrades for Mac OSes in History. Mac's Leopard. Guess what, it's not only bad and in many ways irrelevant, it's also insecure and oh, did I say it has more holes than a leopard has spots?
Yeah, there has not been any serious security reviews of Mac's because .. well, no body takes them seriously ANYWAY! they're really pretty shiny toys. "Fashion Icons" if you may. But a serious computer? Well, maybe.. Personally I know it does the job. But are you going to be "Safe" doing it?
Leopard's firewall is a mess, say researchers, shutting off by default and allowing connections even under "block all."
That's what one researcher claimed after test driving the firewall feature. Guess what, it has more holes than Swiss cheese. It has more holes than the entire army in Iraq, it even has more holes than the number of a$$ holes in Amman University, AND Abdoun COMBINED! Wow! That's a lot of holes!
Even the stupid folks at Microsoft managed to figure out that you MUST have your firewall ON when installing! Leopard keeps you completely exposed! Brrrr, It's cold .. you might catch a virus or a worm through one of them holes! Or it might be that the arrogant folks at Apple thought that "Hey, this is a mac, we don't have viruses or worms"... yeah right!
So you had OsX and you're happily upgrading to the new and improved Leopard, you had firewall on and upgrade ... do you think you still have the firewall on? Naaa! It's GONE, yep, NO MORE! What a joke!
Finally, you decide to go ahead and manually turn on the firewall, only to be surprised that it's APPLICATION ONLY! Doh! I want to open port 53 I don't care which application uses that, just open the goddamn port dummy! Leopard: Huh?. Oh, poor mac users have no way of configuring that!
I feel sorry for you people! I really do! Paying all that money expecting to get something to brag about. Like you paid for the iPhone only to be hacked and wormed and ridiculed for it! So sad really!
