Apple MacBook Air

Apple, we all have heard of them. They boast about being so secure and “safe” and cool. Well apparently their not. There were several contestants in the PWN to OWN competition, which began Wednesday in Vancouver, BC. The contestants were given the choice of trying to hack an Apple MacBook Air and several other computers running various operating systems. On the second day of the competition, the contestants were allowed to tell judges to open specific emails or go to certain websites. This is when the contestants were quickly able to take full control of the computer and gain access to the machine. The winning contestants won $10,000 and the MacBook Air. LOL Ok, you proved that the thing has a major flaw, now its your prize?

I wonder how much longer Apple fans will be able to brag about not running anti-virus and worry about their web surfing habits. Apple is gaining market share, and the more it gains the more attractive the platform looks to hackers. As of right now, there is not enough people or more importantly business’s that are using OS X to put the effort into trying to compromise it. I am sure that as the market share grows so will the threat of viruses.

Do you use a Mac? Do you feel “safe” when your on-line? Leave a comment!
