One of the themes of my recent TechnoRants© has been security and in particular MAC security.  ZDNet published a short interview with Eugene Kaspersky from Computer Business Review about Apple’s lag in taking OS X security seriously. Kaspersky is the CEO of the privately held Kaspersky lab which produces antivirus and other security products.

Eugene asserts that its always been easy to develop and deploy MAC malware and that, security-wise, there is no significant difference between Windows and MAC OS X. He expects to see Apple soon have the same sort of security problems that Microsoft had to deal with a dozen years ago. If Apple wants to have the continued trust of MAC users, the company will have to step up it’s game vis a vis’ security.

The article is a quick read that is well worth your time if you own a MAC or are contemplating buying one.
