While I started working on comparing various OS X hardening guides see the prior diary from a couple of days ago, Apple announced one important new security feature in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The new operating system to be released this summer will include a white listing system based on iOS. iOS has received a lot of criticism for its closed nature, but so far, I have to admit it has worked pretty well. We have heard very little about iOS malware while Android malware appears to start steal the show from Windows malware it got a while to go, but all the news lately appears to be about Android malware.
