REALLY? - Australian IT - Hackers loose worms on Apple (Chris Jenkins, MARCH 22, 2005)
I was just alerted by Google's News Alert email service that hackers have released worms into the wild that attack Mac OS X. Hmm, until I read the article and discover that nothing of the sort has happened, despite the explicitly-worded headline. I'm sure Chris Jenkins will gather a lot of page hits for Australian IT's website, but anyone who knows how to read will realize the headline was completely false.
Not only have no worms for Mac OS X (Apple's operating system) been released, he even describes that non-worm attacks have been increasing on OTHER operating systems. Basically, he points out that security vulnerabilities have been discovered by a company that sells security products (and FIXED by Apple). There are no successful attacks described, and certainly nowhere in the article is a Mac OS X-attacking worm described. Therefore, the headline seems to be indicating some fantasy alternate universe in Chris Jenkins mind, not the article it precedes.
