The Platform Wars

They aren't just about the Gang of Four.

Turns out that the recent Mac malware attack didn’t just affect Mac users. (Is anything isolated these days?) Some hackers were effectively robbing Google of advertising dollars by redirecting clicks from infected Mac OS X machines and stealing the ad revenue.

Simon Says

Google will survive but the premise here is interesting. Less-than-scrupulous folks can exploit the space between platforms. Apple and Google may be frenemies (depending on the day of the week), but hacker-types are finding ways to game the system.

You can try to prevent this, but don’t think for a minute that you can eliminate these types of issues. The fleas come with the dog.


What say you?
