Coming in January: "Month of Apple Bugs"

A security researcher has picked January 2007 as the starting point for a month-long project in which each passing day will feature a previously undocumented security hole in Apple’s OS X operating system or in Apple applications that run on top of it.


The “Month of Apple Bugs” project, currently slated to begin on Jan. 1, is being orchestrated by a security researcher who asked to be identified only by his online alias “LMH.” This is the same researcher who in November ran the “Month of Kernel Bugs” project.


LMH said that while his upcoming project had the potential to at least temporarily make security more tenuous for the average Mac user, he believes that in the long run the project will improve OS X security.


“Right now, many OS X users still think their system is bulletproof, and some people are interested on making it look that way,” LMH said.
