OSX Flashback shows apple innovating something in security. wait what? Apple and security in the same sentence?

15 April, 2012 (10:12) | mac, security

Apple did something brilliant. They might not be good at security, in fact they pretty much always suck at it. This forced them to create something new and just brilliant. If a user doesn’t use Java for X time, it SHUTS OFF! How incredibly obvious but new is that? How cool would it be if telnet got disabled after not being used for a few months on a windows box?

This new process of disabling after a service is not in use needs to become the standard for all platforms.
