    Default Apple sits on critical Mac bug for 7 months

    Researchers have disclosed a critical vulnerability in the latest version of Mac OS X that they say Apple has sat on for almost seven months without fixing.



    The buffer overflow flaw could be exploited by attackers to remotely execute malicious code, and virtually all Apple devices - including Mac computers and servers, iPhones, and even Apple TV - are susceptible, one of the researchers, Maksymilian Arciemowicz, told The Register. SecurityReason.com, the Poland-based security firm he works for, alerted Apple to the vulnerability in the middle of June and again last month, but the computer maker has yet to patch the bug.

    niether mac or microsoft is a perfect OS , but Mac's folks always claim and enforce that mac os is a bullet proof at security measures so they should support their claims and fix it ASAP.
