  6. Tip of the Day Many people think that 'formatting' a hard drive will wipe out all the data so it cannot be recovered
    Not so. To prevent the possibility of future recovery, use a third-party, low-level hard drive formatting tool, such as Killdisk (downloadable at no charge from www.killdisk.com) to overwrite data on the hard drive with a random sequence of 1's and 0's.

Mac OS X version 10.7 is now live in the Mac App Store.

    After a year of anticipation, Apple has finally let loose its biggest cat - Lion - in the Mac App Store.

    Nothing is perfect and everything can be 'hacked'...it's just a matter of popularity.... once the cyber criminals will turn their head towards OS X..... we will really see how secure this OS really is.
    I must admit that ASLR technique sounds very good and will give a run for their money to the cyber crooks.

    Unix gives it a distinct advantage in security right off the bat, so the combination of it and ASLR gives Mac OSX a distinct advantage over most other Operating Systems, notably Windows, as far as security is concerned.

    Only for now, but as people make it more popular it WILL be exploited. I fear that with Apple not having any real threats when they do get hit it will be very hard.

    I recall the guys at the college giving Micro$oft flack for using the Windows Moble interface for Windows 8. They didn't laugh or say anything when I said the same thing about Lion using the iOS interface. :rolleyes:

    I don't care who uses what idea so long as there is a way to turn it off. Honestly, I wish Apple would make the Apple OS general purpose like Windows so you can run it on custom built computers.

    Looks like it's causing more problems for the early adopters using Lion, even some with clean installs.

    What Windows version are we talking about here? XP ? Fine. Granted. If we are going to talk about W7, then I really do not see it being inferior to any Unixy OS security wise or any other way... With the inclusion of ASLR, Mac OS X is finally up to par with other systems. Linux has had ASLR for a long time, Windows has it since Vista...

    By the way, here's a piece of news :

    But, then again, any machine that can be accessed in a physical way has very low chance of not getting pwned.

    Security comes with a price.....And as the OS X market share will grow , Apple will be forced to add other security layers.

    The Siberian Tiger is the largest cat, even larger than a Lion. So, Mac OSX Tiger was the biggest cat released by them...

    according to the reviews and the piles of complaints about things that are now broken and more difficult, i can't stop thinking about the release of Vista.
    Is OS X Lion, apples vista?
