Apple Eating Crow?

Finally, David Maynor and Johnny Cache get some satisfaction. Apple has finally admitted that there is a problem with their wireless driver. Unfortunately they still refuse to admit that this is related to the to the presentation at Black Hat last month. How does Apple expect us to believe that they just happened to find flaws, on their own, shortly after Black Hat? Their integrity and credibility seems to be getting worse and worse. I had considered getting a Mac after I played with one running Paralles and Windows, but then I read about Chris Hurleys experience and now seeing how they have handeled this has changed my mind.

I'm glad that David and Johnny have been vendicated. If not directly by Apple then by their actions anyway. It's just a shame that so many people jumped on Apples bandwagon and tried to drag their names through the mud. Those of us who are Security pros know that they had too much to lose to make up stories just for the shock factor. I don't think anyone who really matters ever doubted them anyway.
