Techdirt points out that security firms have a real predicament on their hands – trying to balance the fear of security issues with the need to sell more software. The problem gets even bigger once software firms cry wolf too many times, then computer users quit worrying about the problems. That ignorance is just begging for a real disaster scenario.
But, are those that project an air of indifference to safety in their own little environs (i.e. Linux and OS X users) part of the lethargic crowd, or do they know something everyone else doesn’t?
