heh heh, Apple gets bitten

Why does it please me so to hear about this? Oh, I know: Apple has been touting itself as superior (and charging prices to go with that) to the PC for so long. I guess one shouldn't brag so much, eh? Heh. So the warning:

Apple has released updates covering multiple vulnerabilities of varying severity. Affected Systems:
. Apple Mac OS X version 10.3.x and 10.4.x
. Apple Mac OS X Server version 10.3.x and 10.4.x

"Both PowerPC and Intel-based Apple systems are affected... the most serious of these vulnerabilities allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code. Attackers may take advantage of the less-serious vulnerabilities to bypass security restrictions or cause a denial of service."

Anyhow, if you're a Mac user, be sure to download the fixes. I'd expect more, too, as long as Mac keeps running those irritating "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" ads. I'm sure that hackers see that as a challenge.

EDIT: Turns out people really love their Macs. Just wanted to let everyone know that I don't hate Macs. I think they're just as viable as any other computer. I just hate those stoopid "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" ads.

Best,
Chris
