Hack a Mac

Folks, decision day is around the corner by Friday March 10th 2006, we will all know if the Mac OSX is as secure as Mac folks have preached. The University of Wisconsin has put up a Mac OS X security challenge and the details of the challenge can be found on this page
I am a Mac owner and would be keen to see what the results are. I am definitely hoping the system would not be compromised as it would give me bragging rights over my windows peers. So Kendall watch out :)


  • The system will be compromised in half a day. THere is no such thing as a system that can be hacked see

  • As usual you are always behind kendall, The compition set up by the University of Wisconsin was because they do not agree that the user who made the claim on ZDnet actually hacked the Mac. Friday will tell and I definitely will be a winner on this one :)

  • There is no operating system that cannot be hacked into.

    If Mac OS was as popular as Window OS hence we could have experienced more hacking.

    If you are a good programmer and system analyst of any particular os hence you might be able to figure out some security fluxes the os or application built on top of the os.

    Most hackers take advantage of application trusted and deployed by users, to gain access onto their system despite the fact users are using a well secure operating system.

    Users will always rely on third party firewall to prevent hacking.

    As hackers become smarter so as firewall builders get smarter too.

    What is the point of having police when there’re no criminals? People will always hack and users should always stay alert to protect their system.
