New & Notewothy: BusinessWeek on OS X's use of UNIX

BusinessWeek on OS X/UNIX A BusinessWeek article notes that OS X's use of UNIX may open it up to an increase in security attacks that the Mac had previously avoided. It is not so much that OS X is more vulnerable than OS 9, it's just that UNIX is a larger and more "tempting" OS for hackers. (Thanks, Greg Lambert and others.)
