Apple shuts stable door

Written by Nick Farrell



After the horse has nicked users Coldplay collection


Apple has finally issued the update to prevent its customers having their Coldplay collections stolen by hackers.

Oracle issued an update to Java earlier this year with dire warnings about what would happen if the update was not installed. Apple, of course, ignored the warnings because in its reality distortion field the warning only applied to Windows machines.

As a result a hacker created a botnet based around 600,000 Apple users. Apple has proudly announced that it has updated Java which made its users easier to hack.  As far as fixing the malware which is on more than 600,000 macs Apple is promising to fix that too.

It is not sure when and so far its activity appears to have been focused on shutting down the security company which pointed out the flaw.
