Kaspersky on the OS X security tipping point

Eugene Kaspersky revisits one of his current hobby horses in the blog When Will Apple ‘Get’ Security Religion? and suggests that Apple can learn a lot from Microsoft and other vendors, notably in terms of patching and advisories.

I’m not without sympathy for that viewpoint, of course: I’ve been pretty vexed myself over the years at Apple’s ‘hear no evil’ stonewalling of criticism and ‘speak no evil’ denial of security problems. Let’s hope that the iOS security document I talked about earlier really does represent a thinning of the Apple veil of secrecy of which Kaspersky speaks.
