Is the Firefox honeymoon over?: Apparently, the number of viruses and exploits coming out for Firefox is more than for IE lately.
As you can see, the facade that Firefox is the cure to the Internet Explorer security blues is quickly fading. It just goes to prove that any popular software worth hacking that has security vulnerabilities will eventually have to deal with live working exploits. Firefox mostly managed to stay under the radar from hackers before April of 2005. Since that time, new exploits are being released almost on a monthly basis.
You know what this proves? Virus targetting is based on market share. The more share you have, the bigger target you become. And yes, this means that the only thing protecting Macs is their own unpopularity. Get some market share, and virus writers will come for you too.
