Famous Hacker Calls Windows More Secure Than Mac

Tech site CNET's posted a great interview with teen-hacker-turned-paid-security-expert Marc Maiffret about his history hacking and the state of security in the current OS ecosystem. Apart from lauding Microsoft for making huge strides in security, he notes that Apple is performing poorly in this area.

Now when you look at Microsoft today they do more to secure their software than anyone. They're the model for how to do it. They're not perfect; there's room for improvement. But they are definitely doing more than anybody else in the industry, I would say.

Anytime there's been a hacking contest, within a few hours someone's found a new Apple vulnerability. If they were taking it seriously, they wouldn't claim to be more secure than Microsoft because they are very much not.

Head over to CNET for the full, and very interesting, interview.
